b. Georgetown, Guyana, South America
As a child, Sobo lived steps from the famous Sea Wall in South America. In grade school, her family moved to Toronto, Ontario. It was there that she flourished in the visual arts.
She studied Business Management at college and worked in the financial sector. Eventually, Sobo wound up on a path that led her back to the arts.
From a chance meeting, she became a professional recording engineer and songwriter. Sobo has since co-written songs with an Award Winning Music Producer that have charted in both Canada and the U.S.
Some of these songs have been featured on hit television shows worldwide including “America’s Next Top Model“(ABC), “NUMB3RS” (CBS), “My Super Sweet Sixteen” (Mtv), “Next” (Mtv), “Pimp My Ride” (Mtv), “Hit The Floor” (BET), etc…
She’s had her artwork displayed in multiple venues in North America and Asia.
With a principle focus on abstract, Sobo seems to consistently capture the essence of the human condition in her works. With a style that varies from the layering of colour to vibrant palette knife painting, she continues to grow in style and confidence with each new work. She also incorporates the tropical hues of her childhood bringing an effervescent, yet visceral feeling to the viewer.

I am most inspired by the great abstract artists of the 20th century including Rothko, Diebenkorn, De Kooning, and Frankenthaler, but I also appreciate Basquiat, Matisse, Picasso and Klimt to name a few.
I enjoy the carving, mixing and layering of paint to create texture and depth. I feel a fusion of energy when I am behind the canvas.
I feel there is a freedom of flow and dimension created when colors intermingle and merge together. Painting allows me to “bring to life” feelings and ideas that I transfer to the surface.
