You'll like Sunny's work if: you like layers of intense color.
"My work is strongly influenced by mystical practices such as Sufism and Alchemy. From these practices, the themes of my artwork surface- doorways as portals to other universes, mysterious languages, circles representing the whirling of the dervish and of the universe and birds being the link between heaven and earth, and between the past and the present. The mixed media pieces in my Choose Your Own Adventure series are made using monotype prints and/or paintings on paper cut into shapes and mounted onto painted heavy weight coverstock paper. Then holes, grommets and chains are added. The new series has a layer of sealed glitter, sequins, plastic jewels, handmade made plastic charms and sometimes beads. Although at first glance the colorful pieces may seem whimsical, a closer look reveals symbols of deep spiritual meaning."
