This sensitive study of "The Rapture" has been produced in monochrome as an alternative to the original colour version with poem. The space to the left emphasises his fervent step towards her to join in her own personal space and is a subtle yet poignant aspect to this timeless piece.
This Limited Edition Giclée Print of Sonya's original offers the highest level of reproduction, making it almost impossible to decipher between the original and print. Edition numbers are kept low to maintain exclusivity with only 8 available in A2 size and 18 available in A3 size.

The Passion Collection was born from a photo shoot at ‘Bristol Salsa Soul’s’ dance class which regularly meets in the centre of Bristol. Sonya was fortunate enough to have Amy and David perform for her where they posed and expressed the passion and vitality of Salsa through movement and gesture.
Having absorbed the intoxicating atmosphere of Salsa during the photo shoot on several visits, she then used the photographic material to paint from in her studio in Westbury-on-Trym, and spent a year creating the collection of work. Often listening to Salsa music while painting, Sonya’s aim was to impregnate the paintings with the energetic footprint of salsa passion and these 5 examples form a perfect representation of her best work.
She hopes you will enjoy her work because you wish to share the passion she has captured with loved ones or people who appreciate the joy of dance and art!
My Father taught me to paint with oils at the age of 7 and from then the passion grew.
I hold a Ba(Hons) in ceramics and continue to feed my love of art through various disciplines. In 2006 I felt the urge to awaken the painter in me again, and combining my love of dance and figurative study I produced a new collection ‘Passion’ which was launched at the Grant Bradley Gallery in November 2014 ~ My aim to enrich people’s lives with what I produce, not just because visually it brings enjoyment but because it touches a part of their Soul.
