sOnia HENSLER is a UK-based artist with extensive, worldwide experience in a variety of areas, ranging from editorial work and art direction to web design and bespoke portraiture.
Her work is often centred on her love of Victorian fashion, design and architecture. The Victorian aesthetic manages to combine unique, Anglian elegance with a dark, sometimes challenging, gothic flair. There is a playful balance at work in this period where whimsy vies with formality, creating an unlikely juxtaposition that undoubtedly informs and enriches her work as an illustrator.
