Sophia Fendel


Hello! I am Sophia Fendel, a freelance illustrator living Augsburg, Germany. I was born in 1992 in the beautiful vineyard town of Radebeul, where I grew up with four great siblings and seven budgerigars.

The tower ruins on the vineyards, the nearby, mysterious forests and rocks of Saxon Switzerland and the annual Karl May Festival fueled my interest in world history, nature and the peoples of the earth.

So it is not surprising that I love to illustrate all kind of myths, legends and fairy tales from around the world, because I always found it fascinating how different (or similar sometimes) our cultures tell stories or remember their own origin.

For me as an illustrator it is also important to bring more multicultural characters in picture books. I think that especially indigenous children from all over the world need much more representation in children´s literature so that they have more characters to indentify with.
