Sonya Palencia, is a painter, illustrator, sculptor and woodcarver, whose work celebrates nature and the mystical with the romantic aesthetics of the old world.
As a child, Sonya began creating art and studying the nearby wilderness, historical landmarks, and the extraordinary past of her native California. She later traveled abroad to research the classical arts and traditional folklore of numerous countries. Sonya graduated from the Art Center College of Design (Pasadena, CA) with distinction in Film & Fine Art, and served 10 years in the film industry as a designer and sculptor. She and her husband (fellow artist Jeff Nentrup) have since left the city to pursue their fine art on a ranch nestled within the inspiring Californian Los Padres National Wilderness.
