Sonya Coulson Rook
Sonya has always loved making and creating, spending most of her childhood covered in finger paint and glue, while surrounded by pipe cleaners, googly eyes and construction paper. Sonya fell in love with metal while studying art at East Carolina University in Greenville, NC. After two somewhat disastrous semesters of ceramics classes, her professor suggested that she take a metals course. Sonya hadn't considered the media before, but decided to give it a try. The first time Sonya picked up the hammer, she was hooked and hasn't looked back since.
