Soniya is a self-taught contemporary artist; She explains her process as a combination of intuition and experimentation. Her work is majorly influenced by nature, color and artistic influence of Helen Frankenthaler and her belief that there is “no formula” and the artist should “ let the picture lead you where it must go” inspires her.
She believes that the whole concept of painting is to allow your energy to direct you; she says that the freedom of expression creates happiness and the real joy of painting is in happy accidents.
Acrylics are her main medium however she is always exploring new mediums, tools, and techniques. She loves the freedom that abstract art gives her and she believes and hopes that her paintings evoke same calming, yet positive response in the people who see or buy her art.
