Sonia Cook

Sonia is interested in recycling and natural forms. Sonia started using materials found at the recycling centre, exploring knitting and knotting them together to form wall hangings, blankets, nests and webs. Sonia uses found objects, man-made reusable materials and natural biodegradable materials (twigs, willow and leather). Sonia uses all these materials to emulate repeating natural shapes that are beautiful to see and are also a reminder of nature itself.

“I like to believe we can create art from discarded and ephemeral materials that no longer serve their original purpose”
