Sophia Park - Artist Biography
Sophia is currently a senior at SU graduating Fall 2013 with a BFA in Painting. Sophia has always been interested in art ever since she could remember. She was introduced to art by her older sister and has always been fascinated by what could be possible by using ones hands and mind to create something beautiful. However, Sophia never picked up a paintbrush herself until she was older because she never wanted to become a shadow of her older sister. Sophia started experimenting with mixed media and watercolor when she moved to Salisbury, MD from Virginia in 2004 out of boredom and from not knowing anyone in the area. That summer changed Sophia’s life forever because it opened her eyes to all the different possibilities that she could do with assorted mediums and the excitement of the unknown in what she was producing. Sophia will always draw that summer close to her heart because without listening to her intuition and her heart, Sophia would never have become the person she is today.
Sophia is extremely active and is always on the go. If she is not doing something, she will find something to do. Sophia’s hobbies include reading, listening to music, yoga and travelling. The possibilities in life are inexhaustible. Sophia tries her best to fulfill her peace and happiness in life through living each moment like it’s her last and to embrace everything around her.
