Evans honors her roots and cherishes her evolution
Ten years ago, Sonja Griffin Evans was trying to battle out of a very dark place. In therapy and fighting through a battle with depression, Evans was asked what makes her happy.
She thought back to her days drawing anything that came to her mind in high school. She thought of her Gullah heritage. And then, she just started painting.
A decade later, Evans is one of the featured artists at the 2015 Gullah Celebration XVII Arts Ob We People annual art exhibition, a healthy, celebrated and thriving artist still using art as her daily therapy.
