On Divinity

My name is Sophia and I call my artwork Divine. Is this a reference to the long-lost Divine Sophia? Yes, it is. However, it’s important for one to recognize my undertones of playfulness; I'm not going around posturing to be a deity. I recognize the divine nature in the masculine and the feminine; in us all. Each of us is a vessel for divine energy, and my artwork is how I conduct my own.
