Sonia Grineva

Sonia Grineva was born in Moscow, Russia, and received her B.A. and
M.F.A. degrees from the Stroganov Art Institute, Moscow's leading art
school, whose faculty has included such figures Kandinsky, Malevich and
Rodchenko, among others.

Upon coming to the United States at the age of 20, she continued her
studies at the National Academy of Design in Manhattan, where she was
awarded a prestigious traveling scholarship granting her the opportunity to
study in Florence, Italy at the British Institute.

Sonia has traveled extensively, and works on location in the tradition of
many plein air artists. Her travels have taken her to many parts of the US,
including New England, the South and California. She has also travelled
widely in Europe and has made paintings of some of the continent's most
impressive landscapes and city scenes, including those in and around
Venice, La Rochelle, Monte Carlo, Dieppe, and Prague.

In the past few years Sonia has spent a significant amount of time painting
in Italy, and has created landscapes that range from the olive groves of
Puglia to the snowcapped peaks of Alto Adige. She draws deep inspiration
from Italian history and culture, as well as from the thousands of years of
artistic expression that are present in the country's architecture, paintings,
sculpture and human landscapes.

Sonia has received many distinguished awards and recognitions for her

Ms. Grineva has gained an international reputation for her oil and
watercolor landscapes and abstract paintings, and is well known and
appreciated in New York for her Manhattan cityscapes. In addition, she is

work can be seen in galleries in New York, New England, Washington and
Georgia, Europe and in numerous private, public, and museum collections.
