For Sonia Lopez-Chavez, the pursuit of passion and beauty has been her calling since inception. Born in the vibrant city of Guanajuato, Mexico, at an early age Sonia moved to San Diego and has remained ever-since, ever inspired by the gorgeous scenery and diverse culture.
Lopez-Chavez’s work embodies pulsating color schemes and themes of heritage as based off her vivid Mexican background and childhood. Often featuring strong feminine forms Sonia seeks to capture the inner and outer beauty of each individual portrayed.
Sonia’s folk art style and detailed facial features of her subjects are her signature style. She often uses mixed media and reclaimed materials in her work. Her paintings have appeared in publications, galleries and private collections throughout the world.
