“Every good painter paints what he is.” – Jackson Pollock
I am a Utah artist, but don’t expect landscape paintings! Many of my fellow artists from the Beehive State paint the majestic natural world that surrounds us: canyons, deserts, vistas, mountains. If you look at a landscape, you may be impressed with the artist’s technique. You may even be overcome by the same sense of awe and wonder you’d get from looking at the natural world instead of a depiction on canvas.
My art depicts things that can’t be seen, things like emotions, memories, dark corners of the human soul. After you walk around and experience physical beauty in the world, come experience something totally different by losing yourself in my work. Not only will you see my visions, you may begin to experience your own.
Sonya’s long and varied career in the art world has taken her many places. She began at the University of Utah, graduating with a BFA in studio arts and printmaking while working as a research assistant on the Utah Museum of Fine Arts African Art collection (all the while dabbling in architectural history and design). Passion for African art landed her in art history graduate study at UCLA. She continues to paint.
Her recent shows include: Ceres Gallery, New York Salt Lake City Public Library, Corrine and Jack Sweet Branch, Salt Lake City Bountiful Davis Art Center, Bountiful Tin Angel Cafe, Salt Lake City Utah Arts Alliance Gallery, Salt Lake City Braithwaite Gallery, Cedar City
