Raised in the English countryside, Sonica fell in love with the art of filmmaking and animation from an early age. While watching old cartoons and hand-animated movies on her tube tv, she would have a sketchbook close by in case inspiration struck. Sonica grew up drawing and designing characters in her low-tech environment, and picked up the concepts of cel animation from making flip-books, and watching Disney behind-the-scenes shorts. She slowly Transitioned from drawing and animating as a hobby -now in the US school environment, to focusing on animation as a career at CU Denver. She is set to graduate (Spring 2023) with her Bachelors in Fine Arts with a 3D animation focus and minor in illustration. After Sonica graduates, she will return to acquire a second bachelor’s degree in film. She aspires to dedicate her life to becoming a multi-talented filmmaker and freelancer.
