Sonoka Gozelski, East Northport, NY Member Since March 2016 Artist Statement Born and raised in Fukuoka, Japan, living in NY since 1997. My background is theatre. I've been in theatre industry over a decade as a set designer/assistant/scenic artist/carpenter. Being in the world of meticulous planning and collaboration, I truly cherish the freedom of creating collages. I am a texture junky in 2-D and 3-D. I layer found objects and all kinds of paints. I call my style "Extremely painterly collage works with a burst of vintage flare."
