 ︎  ︎ ︎ About


I am an illustrator from Mataró, a Mediterranean city near Barcelona.

I graduated from the Children’s Book Illustration MA at Cambridge School of Art in 2020. 

I love everything about illustration and storytelling. From picturebooks to comics. I enjoy experimenting with traditional and digital art - considering several techniques to find the one that matches the story.


I’m represented outside Spain by Pickled Ink. Please contact Amy Kitcherside for inquiries at amy@pickledink.com

For visual development or character design work, you can contact me at sonalbert@gmail.com or here

I speak Catalan, Spanish, English, a bit of French and I’m learning German :)
