My name is Sonja Funnell, and I have worked as an illustrator for several authors. My style is a realistic one with dynamic colors, and sometimes surrealistic elements. I am able to create work from completely fantastical to realistic depending on the project. From my different illustration positions, I have created a large amount of realistic work involving drawing humans and animals. I have been illustrating professionally since 2008, along with doing freelance portraits and murals as well. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh with a BFA in 2D art and Graphic Design.
