Sonya Fe

Sacramento, CA

“A person of strength, who paints like hell,” is how one gallery owner describes Sonya Fe.

I’m not free, is Fe’s inner calculation. The nature of her work has always been a biographical depiction of her own life encounters. As an artist, she has chosen her subject matter to be the plight of women and children. “I feel there is a need for these to be seen by the public - for all those who have been through hell and back but have no means to express themselves, they will look and breathe a sigh of relief,” says Fe.

Sonya Fe received her BA in art from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. She has published children’s stories and a drawing book to help children illustrate their own stories. She is co-founder of Publishing Children’s Stories, an intervention program integrating literacy, art and technology for elementary schools. In 1998, Fe received the National Artist Award from the California State Senate.
