Biography


Born in Galt, Ontario, Sonia Wilkinson is an artist now living in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. With the use of acrylic paint and working through a design process, Wilkinson recreates the human face in unusual ways using distorted, textured and colourful lines and shapes. A facial expression emerges every time. A thought can almost be read on each bizarre face. Wilkinson remembers dabbling in many different art forms at home, at public school and at a local art school, Dundas Valley School of Art. She later chose graphic design as a career and obtained a diploma from Sheridan College in 1995. Wilkinson went on to have a 22-year career as a graphic designer. In 2015, a passion for painting awakened after attending a paint party with friends. She now creates her Peculiar Art for this Mad World full-time. With her art she hopes to encourage people to not just accept what might be strange (about themselves or others), but to celebrate it! The list of influences is ever-growing: Pablo Picasso's cubism and his use of colour, style and artistic playfulness; Henry Moore's graceful lines; Andy Warhol's passion for the unconventional; Thomas Fedro's graffiti-style faces that are gritty and humorous; plus numerous other artists Wilkinson comes across on a daily basis who are working, creative warriors and business tycoons.
