Award-winning illustrator SONIA SÁNCHEZ paints with both traditional and digital brushes using layers of texture in her work to evoke emotion and movement. Her debut picture book, HERE I AM (Capstone), received two starred reviews and was nominated for the Eisner Award in the category of Best Painter interior art. Sonia’s art has twice been selected for the prestigious Society of Illustrators Original Art Show. She lives with her husband, son, and a sleepyhead cat in a blue house near the Mediterranean Sea.
