SONIA PEÑARANDA is an architect and artist who has lived and worked in Colombia, Manhattan, Boston, Atlanta, New Haven, Los Angeles, Buffalo, and now Chicago. With a degree in Architecture and a Masters in Museum Studies, Sonia began exhibiting her work while living in Colombia. Her paintings have been sold in designer showrooms and galleries and can be found in private and corporate collections worldwide.

Inspired by love, passion, past and possible future experiences my art explores feelings in an unreal space. Rich palette of color envelops the different shapes that come from my mind in a free way framed within a sophisticated composition. Through paint, I express myself and communicate with my collectors in an intimate circle. I felt it in a moment of my life and… you felt the same at some point in your life. It is a silent, symbolic, and colorful nexus between us.
