Sonja Alves' Profile
I'm an artist and mama... though sometimes in the other order...
I'm first and foremost a collage artist (though I've been known to draw, paint, and wield a camera). I work with found images and ephemera, mostly creating small pieces which are snapshots from an imagined narrative or dreamscape. The goal of my work is to create a feeling like you've discovered a hidden moment, frozen in time, and are peeking in through the looking glass. I'm influenced a lot by the dada movement (and Hannah Höch in particular) as well as the abstract expressionists and other modern painters - such as Frida Kahlo and Mark Rothko.
"Whuffling Studio" comes from my son, The Whuffle. From birth, the young gentleman made this rather strange... whuffling... noise to communicate, and it became a name that stuck. Now it's the name my studio has…
