My name is Sonia Dubois. I’m an illustrator and a graphic designer, born in 1992 in Neuilly-Sur-Seine, France. I studied Architecture at the University of the Arts in Poznań for 6 years. After graduating I naturally stepped away from architecture to devote myself to drawing. My illustrations are conceived in Poznań, in my workshop, which is packed with plants and full of sunlight. I am always accompanied by my adopted beloved dog, Benio.

My linoprints are created using a bespoke printing press. Whilst working on commercial drawings I enjoy sitting on a 100-year-old chair that I have inherited from by grandmother, Zosia. I like happy accidents at work when creating linoprints. Each texture, each piece of thread that was accidently left sitting on a linoprint template, imperfectly distributed paint – these create the outstanding side effects, so to speak, of my prints. The digital illustrations are first hand drawn, then transferred to my iPad, when I play with textures, colors and lines.
