Sonya Wohletz is a graduate student of Latin American Art History at Tulane University, though she has always loved writing poetry and fiction. Her objects of study—miraculous images of the Virgin, female sainthood, and mystical experiences—have a personal meaning for Sonya, as they inspire much of her creative work. Moreover, Sonya harbors an interest in expressions of femininity from all cultures and from all periods. She takes a comparative approach to her study of religious and spiritual expression. A native of New Mexico, Sonya has lived in several different Latin American countries and hopes to continue travelling and learning throughout her life.
