She studied art history in Rome, Italy, Paris, France, Geneva, Switzerland and London, England. Sonia attended College in Boston, Mass., where she majored in Fine Arts and minored in General Studies. After completing college in 1975, she returned home to pursue a career as a Professional Artist.

Sonia has taught art at St. John’s College High School {1978-1979} and at St. Anne’s High School {1993-1994}. In 1979 she was appointed Gallery Director to the exclusive Lyford Cay Art Gallery. She was the first Bahamian to hold that position. From 1982-1983 she worked in the Art Gallery at Nassau Glass. She was also the Director of Spectrum Art Gallery, Bay Street from 1986-1988.

In November 1984, Sonia had her first One-Woman Exhibition of Thirty paintings in Eaton Town, New Jersey. This exhibit was in aid of The Mental Health Association of Monmouth County. The exhibit was sponsored by the magazine “House Beautiful”. She was the first Bahamian female to have a major One-Woman Show in the United States.

Bold, alive colors typify this Artist’s work. Sonia is a mood painter, each mood dictates a versatility of style which is applied with skill, and makes statement of blending colors and texture into uniquely diversified forms.

Sonia has extended herself past the canvas. She also works on unglazed pottery with scenes depicting the culture of her Bahamas.

The bright tropical colors of her Bahamian works have been well received in her native land. Her collectors in The Caribbean, U.S.A. and Europe consistently enjoy her imaginative use of color and subjects.

Sonia has had several one woman exhibits and has taken part in numerous group shows in Nassau and Eleuthera, and now works full time in her studio at home.
