Sonya is an old soul who is deeply connected to her home. Having lived in Russia her whole life she likes to tell stories about her family, her pets, and food she is going to make. A lot of her work is influenced by Russian folk narratives and superstitions which Sonya absorbed all throughout childhood. These narratives feed her imagination every day as she moves around the world to pursue her dream to become a filmmaker. Right now Sonya is about to start a new chapter at CalArts’ graduate program in animation where she will continue creating supernatural narratives inspired by her Russian heritage.
