Hi there! Thank you for visiting my portfolio.

I am a Southern California native and a Cal State University Fullerton grad with a degree in studio art. I find joy simply sketching in my sketchbook or drawing tablet.  I am a freelance illustrator and mom to two sweet and silly kids who inspire me daily. I love to create whimsical and colorful illustrations. My hope is to bring a little happiness to those who view my work.

I love. . . 

 drawing, watching movies, time with my kids, children's books, my morning coffee, tacos, daily walks with my Labradoodle, Cody, and drinking a glass of wine while cooking pasta. 




Some lovely people I have recently worked with:

 Familius Publishing, Usborne Publishing, Oxford University Press, Bushel and  Peck Books, Campbell/  Pan Mcmillian,  Clearfork Publishing, House Of Tomorrow Books, The Webster,  Hopping On A Rainbow,  and Whiskey Loves Basil.

"I discovered that Sandie is meticulous in her work and really listens to the directions of her clients. In addition, she is great about meeting deadlines or making last minute changes if needed. I have been very pleased with Sandie Sonke’s work and without a doubt; she will be at the top of my list for future projects." -Laura Suarez
