About Fierce Sonia:
Fierce Sonia is a mixed media artist from White Sulphur Springs, WV. Sonia often works with juxtaposed themes of hard and soft, morbid and hopeful, and life and death; and her artworks remain decidedly feminine. She is interested in the narratives of the most common and unifying stories: religion, fairy tales, super heroes, mythology, pop culture, and advertisement. Her works imagine worlds where comic book and fairy tale heroines are deconstructed and reframed to explore the rhythm of modern life. Her female characters are strong and hopeful.

About ART26201:
ART26201 is a non-profit organization whose mission is to “celebrate and promote the creative and inspirational opportunities in the Buckhannon community.”  For more information about ART26201 projects, and for ways to provide financial or volunteer support, email info@ART26201.com or visit their website at www.ART26201.com.
