About Sonia Alins : Since 1998, Sonia Alins has been working from her studio creating illustrations for children books, magazines and educational projects. In the past few years, she has combined this side with a more artistic career. Sonia's art is a personal combination of surrealism and visual poetry. Her artworks reflect her thoughts, her fears, her feelings and her desires. She develops a conceptual narrative, full of delicate details, which is always trying to explore new ways of expression: the result is a sophisticated language of her own.
STATEMENT OF ART:
For me, art is an aesthetic dream come true.
