Sunya lives and works in Northern California. She has a passion for education, having taught art for many years alongside her own creative pursuits. Engagement through interaction and play is a strong thread seen in her installations for events and festivals. She’s always seeking new ways to communicate visually and to broad audiences of all ages, specifically through elements in nature and the juxtapositions of materials, such as steel and silk, wood and metal. She loves to play with possibilities, especially in the use of materials; creating unique textures, patterns, vibrant colors, and larger-than-life creations.
