Sophia came to Canada, leaving her home in Slovakia, almost 50 years ago. For many years she taught art in schools in Saint John and later at Belleisle Regional High School. Since retiring, Sophia has had more time to spend on her artwork. Over the years she has worked in many art and craft mediums, including clay, drawing, painting, batik and the art of bobbin lace.
All through her adult life, landscapes and houses in them, have fascinated Sophia. The paintings in this display - depicting Northern Slovakia - are older watercolours that she has re-worked using markers.
