About

I'm Sonja Oldenburg from Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Botanical illustration, Art Nouveau, intricate motifs, and insect charts inspire my work. I enjoy a lush and cluttered aesthetic, full of energy and detail in every corner of the canvas.

I am passionate about drawing and illustration using colored pencils and ink pens as my tools of choice. I love working with an established subject and spontaneously letting it develop and grow as I draw.

I hope you enjoy looking at my work! Contact me with any questions, I’d love to hear from you.
