ABOUT THE ARTIST
At a very young age, Sophia began exploring all sorts of colors giving the canvas different shapes. At age 12, Sophia embarked her artistic path under the guidance of Chris Burlini, a visionary artist, and an amazing art teacher. At the time Burlini Studio of the Arts only allowed adult students, but after Sophia's introduction of her work, Chris Burlini took her under his wings. Sophia soon developed an interest in the use of the pallet knife. Born and raced in Florida, Sophia developed a passion for Florida's beautiful ocean scenes and its surroundings; therefore Sophia has always been drawn to aquatic hues. Sophia uses the color blue in her paintings to show its qualities like calmness, openness, depth, and wisdom. " I allow my paintings to guide me to the next step of evolution. As my paintings evolve, I become more and more attached to the feeling of creation." The ocean and its surroundings became her inspiration. At age 16, she began her first series of rustic boats and open seas. "My boats represent the workmanship of an artist." Today Sophia is working on her new series of abstract and figurative art.
Sophia's artwork has been featured at Ther Cornell Art Museum in Delray Beach, at Spanish River Library in Boca Raton, the Delray Beach Art Gallery, and the Renaissance Hotel in Boca Raton.
Sophia Vigne is the founder of Art's In You, a step-by-step mobile sip and paint social art party. As an artist her goal is to make art more accessible to the community, to do so, she developed a way of bringing art to her customer's front doors. "My method of teaching makes it easy for everyone to finish a lovely masterpiece." Sophia has worked with autistic Kids, Nursing Homes, Retirement Communities, and more.
