Expert Art Advice

from a Professional Curator

I’m Sonya Sparks, owner and chief curator at Sparks Gallery in the vibrant heart of San Diego, CA. My mission as your personal art stylist is to pair collectors with affordable, accessible, and thought-provoking artwork, so the art in your space speaks to your heart.

Our top selling types of artwork are abstract paintings, expressionist paintings, and mixed media artwork.

If you live in Southern California, you may have seen my curated exhibitions for: the Oceanside Museum of Art Artist Alliance, Allied Craftsmen of San Diego, Cannon Art Gallery (Carlsbad, CA), and the Escondido Arts Partnership.

Each year, I have the privilege of collaborating with hundreds of diverse clients who are on a quest to acquire original contemporary artwork. I’ve helped source and place thousands of paintings and sculptures over the past 11 years.
