Sofya Rhea was born in 1991 in Togliatti, Russia. Raised in a Post-Soviet industrial city, she gravitated towards art and travel to escape the grey reality she found herself in. After traveling extensively in Europe, a move to Los Angeles set in motion a renewed drive for creative exploration.
With a background in digital sculpting and a love of nature, her unique style developed from experimentation with anatomical and botanical elements. Her skillful fusion of these create distinctive flowing and surreal compositions. Her work exudes openness and vulnerability while exploring the strength of female sensuality.
Sofya utilizes a broad spectrum of tools such as painting, photography and 3d modeling/sculpting to achieve the desired result.
In recent years she has been focusing on expanding her body of work while furthering her career in jewelry design.
