Sonica Joshi-Mann

Sonica, an art admirer and a passionate creator has a special interest in abstract expressionism and textured abstract art. 

Her goal is to create affordable quality art which is soul touching and easy on pocket!

Exploring abstract art in terms of form, layers, texture and shape is what excites Sonica the most. This form clearly depicts her innermost feelings and emotions. Bright, bold, metallic and vibrant colors are an integral part of her work.

Most of her works are inspired by nature and travel! Traveling, hiking, working in her garden and meditating in nature brings endless creativity to her style of work.
