Sonia Kane, Raleigh Member Since December 2016 Artist Statement A Bit About Sonia
North Carolina artist Sonia Kane is a painter of sunlit moments. She loves looking for those times when the fleeting sun graces the shadows of an everyday scene with its transforming beauty. These “oh wow” moments are the inspiration for her oil paintings as they remind her to linger and savor God’s world.
Sonia graduated from Virginia Tech in 1982 with a degree in Aerospace Engineering and a job in the Space Shuttle program. Admittedly, “rocket science” is not the normal path for an artist, but her artistic love was never far away. She left IBM in 1994 and has been taking art classes and workshops ever since.
Today, Sonia’s award-winning paintings hang in numerous private and corporate collections throughout the United States. She and her husband, Matthew, have raised their three children in Raleigh and have made it their home since 1988.
