“My first solo show in America, Looking at the Sky, took place in 1999 at the JCC and spoke about home lost and about change that was not easy. Only a few short years in Indiana, still trying to find ground under my feet and growing new roots, I found a place that was warm and friendly, a place full of life and a wonderful positive energy.” Working in acrylic on fabric and other mixed media, Sofiya’s work evokes feelings of master artist Marc Chagall. She paints emotions, and in the center of her work is still a human heart. Inger received her Fine Arts degree from the Kirov School of Art in Russia and studied textile design at the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.) in New York City.
