Sonia Hrybko has been creating wind chimes and sun catchers for a number of years now with the materials used being primarily driftwood, glass & crystal beads, deconstructed vintage jewelry, sea glass and bells. She loves the process of finding that special feature bead, (or stick or sea glass) and seeing what inspires her from there.
She grew up on northern Vancouver Island surrounded and inspired by nature, but has lived on the lower mainland most of her adult life, and currently lives in Burnaby with her husband and ever helpful cats.
While she does have a fulfilling day job, she finds that creating these bright sparkly pieces of whimsical art in her off time help her keep balance in life.
Especially during these last couple of years where everyone is a little more home bound, “creating” has been an amazing and positive outlet and she loves to know that some of her pieces have travelled across Canada and USA to their new homes and windows of sunshine and light. Every line is always different and unique, and while many pieces are similar in style, no two are the same.
Sonia looks forward to the near future where she can host workshops again, and be around friends and likeminded artists who can create and share in person.
