Hi, I'm Sonia Agüera Gonzalez of Tenmei Illustration.


I'm a PhD-trained cell biologist and immunologist who has worked in England and France. After several years in academic research, I decided to integrate my lifelong passion for science and drawing by pursuing a career in picture book making.


I'm excited about using picture books to introduce kids to science. Science is really cool, and so much of it starts with a basic childlike attitude of asking questions. I also want to help scientists convey their findings to the world because so often fascinating results get lost in the flood of data.


I hope to help others, one drawing at a time. My mission is to provide parents, carers and educators with books to discuss science, equality, diversity, well-being and environmental issues with children.


I look forward to hearing from you!
