Sona Babajanyan

Australia

Sona is a graphic artist and illustrator from Armenia, currently living in Brisbane, Australia. Although she has been making art all her life and took some art classes as a teenager, she is largely self-taught. She has been working as a translator of literature, editor, and graphic designer, and it was not until 2008, when she finally decided to focus all her attention on art and illustration. She offers art for children’s and adult books, greeting cards, editorial and private clients. Sona’s works are full of subtle humor, poetry and magic. She exhibited her work in the US, Armenia and Australia. Many of her works are held in private collections worldwide. Sona’s art being influenced by the modern and medieval, by the East and the West, remains exclusively individual. She works both in traditional and digital media, both in color and black and white. She loves experimenting with different techniques and and media, her all time favorite being Indian ink, graphite, pastels color pencils, and acrylics.
