About the instructor: 

Sophie Tivona grew up wandering in gardens around the Bay Area and dreaming of flowers, rocks, soil, and water. She was raised by her single mother, who has been a professional gardener her whole life. Sophie always loved to create paper products and would find quiet spaces in the yard to make little treasures. She has followed a meandering path to find her way to a career in illustration, and she's delighted to share her love of nature through painting. Watercolor is her muse, and she loves its unpredictable, unforgiving qualities; it is her daily joy to harness the medium's wildness and reveal its delicacy and strength.
