“In the Studio With” is a new series produced by Mission-based filmmaker-composer Karl Cronin, in collaboration with artist Theo Knox.
Sonya Philip was born in the Philippines. As a self-taught artist, she enjoys the freedom of exploring and stretching mediums. Disruption and identity play a large role in her work. It is a work that is born of patience.
There is a simple intricacy in each stitch and an incremental care in making things by hand. Sonya is accustomed to the interplay and is at home in the places where art and craft intersect. She lives in San Francisco and has a studio in the Mission. For more information, visit her website.
