Starlie Sokol-Hohne is a renowned contemporary mixed media artist. She was born in 1958 in Santa Monica California and completed her studies at UCLA in 1980. Since then, she has been exhibiting nationally and her work is held in numerous collections including private, public and corporate collections. Her work combines multiple mediums spanning from dynamic photograph collages and print work to paintings. Her paintings draw inspiration from the nature she experiences from her equestrian rides through the woods and canyons near her home. These trips are what inspired her to express nature the way that it is, extremely abstract as well as realistic.
