Sonia Poli

Graphic designer, Illustrator

Tourcoing, France
5 cats and 2 goldfish later, Sonia Poli becomes a graphic designer very much into pencils and crayons so that she can draw all day long ^_^. At 21, she goes live in England where she will fall in love with illustration, especially for picture books. Today she works in between Lille and London, enjoying croissants and crumpets, as well as rosé bien frais and cider on tap !
