Sonya Gonzalez, Artist

I have been painting for over 28 years and have exhibited locally and nationally. I am a native of San Antonio and my art is inspired by nature, music, family, faces and the Hispanic culture. I like using bold colors, and presenting the whimsical side of life. I started playing the violin at age 8 which has been a big influence on my work.

My pieces have been featured on the covers of national magazines such as American Recorder, Southwestern Musician, Music Educators National Conference, and The Poet. Most recently, my art was featured on the cover of In the Midst of Covid-19 Anthology, a worldwide publication. I have also done commissioned work for nonprofit organizations.
