Inspired by her Ngāti Porou Māori, English, Swedish and Irish heritage, Sofia paints striking and sacred art.
For Sofia, making art is about connecting our modern human experience with the wisdom of our ancestors.
With each brushstroke, Sofia explores powerful themes that are both deeply personal and profoundly universal; of Māori mythology, Mana Wahine (Divine Feminine), and the mana (integrity) of generations past.
“Painting awe-inspiring characters is both grounding and uplifting in this fast-paced digital world. I hope their stories and presence can provide a sense of connection for people.”
