07 – Painter – Sofia Minson

Who needs a television, a couch, or even a living room?

What a waste of good space. Ever imagined converting an entire room in your house into your creative studio?

Today’s guest is painter Sofia Minson, and she’s done exactly that. The biggest, lightest, and most comfortable room in her house – where she spends most of her time – has become her painting studio.

Sofia Minson has spent her creative career painting ‘whatever the heck she feels like’.

“If I won’t enjoy painting something, I don’t do it.”

Sofia’s ancestry is a huge inspiration in her artwork, drawing on her Ngāti Porou Māori, Swedish, English and Irish heritage, and she enjoys the time-consuming and patient process of layering oil paints on canvas. 13-14 years after her first pieces sold at The Woman’s Show, her latest limited edition prints are selling for $1,000, with the original pieces selling for multiples more!

Join us, as we discuss her creative space, creative inspiration, reaching a state of flow, the importance of support, collaborations and exhibitions, and so much more!
