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 for her whole life. Sophie has 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 is overjoyed to share her love of nature through painting. Watercolor is Sophie's muse and she loves its unpredictable, unforgiving qualities; it is her daily joy to harness the wildness of the medium and reveal its delicacy and strength.
