Artist Statement

Sophia's artwork is inspired by colors, nature, meditation, music, architecture, and travel. As part of her evolution as an artist, she is inspired by closely observing daily events that create emotional narratives for her paintings. Sophia believes that colors are powerful media which create a bridge across the various energies, emotions, and rhythms that affect human moods, and she makes use of this synergy to express positive abstract emotions in her artworks. Through her work, Sophia aims to evoke a beautiful, contemplative experience of emotions being felt in the moment.
