Born (1988) and raised outside of Vancouver, Canada, Sonia Pacheco discovered sculpting in Los Angeles in 2012, when she stepped into her first class while six months pregnant and trapped in an abusive relationship. Thus began her career and journey of healing.
Over the past eight years, Pacheco’s challenges intensified, yet she persisted to continue studying and expanding her sculpting practice. Today, Pacheco works out of her home in Los Angeles where she resides with her daughter Ava, exploring new techniques, materials, and applications. Her work reflects her hardships and her hope, her past and her present, carrying a message of strength for all who encounter it.
