testimonials

 
She has a lot of great ideas about how to put together and present your portfolio, and I appreciate her upbeat and encouraging tone.
— Rachel M, USA
It really helped me to talk to Sonia about my portfolio, she pointed out things that worked and tips on how to make something stand out better through layouts. Our meeting was really nice and casual, kinda like meeting a friend for a coffee and a chat. I definitely recommend getting in touch with her for advice about your portfolio.
— Inga Hildur, Iceland
I found Sonia’s teaching approach to be very relaxed which was refreshing - as if we were on the same level; colleagues rather than Tutor / Student. During my studies at the Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) it became apparent that Sonia drew inspiration not only from her surroundings but from the people she worked with; her students. The diversity of her knowledge and skills was always evident in her work. Plus she has a distinctive and infectious laughter, with charisma to match!
— Sasha Bolatovich, UK
A wonderful lecturer, Sonia is probably one of the very few people I look up to and hate to disappoint. Having been extremely supportive all through my Higher Education, she has always pushed me to do better; which is one of the main reasons I transferred from RMI Bangalore, where she lead our course, to the UK where she had taken up a new teaching position.
— Niriksha Baliga, India
Sonia is a great teacher who has given me the opportunity to develop not just as a Designer but as a person too. Her teaching skills were perfect for my transition from Art Foundation to BA Honours. She is truly inspirational.
— Trishita Ghosh, UK
Sonia’s optimism and enthusiasm inspires others to reach their full potential. She has helped and guided me on a wide range of interior design and architecture projects, and enriched my work through her innovative design thinking and creativity. Sonia offers the best advice and I feel privileged to have been taught by and worked with her!
— Katie Thomas, UK
Throughout my university degree, Sonia always supported my style of working and ideas, no matter how crazy they were. She always knew the right things to say to motivate and inspire you. Sonia is just amazing!
