Paper Dresses by Artist Sonya Sanchez Arias, Boca Raton, Florida
Born and raised in Trinidad & Tobago, Sonya is a successful photographic stylist, commercial photographer, and photographic art director for more than 28 years. Her art follows the “up-cycling and repurposing” movement, which reevaluates the worth of waste by reclaiming and reinterpreting the beauty of discarded materials and found objects in new and unexpected ways. All of Sonya’s mixed media assemblages and art jewelry are handmade one-of-a-kind pieces, the recycled materials that she manipulates gives her mixed media work a strong identity with unique characteristics effectively making each piece a distinct work of art.
