Sonya moved to Houston 3 years ago to pursue her art dream. She went to The Art Institute in 84-85 and now works at Houston Methodist. On the side she does portraits for her clients, as well as sometimes banners or even back-drops at her church. She would love to learn how to do large scale painting and air brushing one day. As for now, she says "I love chalking and the way you can blend the colors and I love the mess."
