Sondra came to design circuitously through the world of dance with an unanticipated stop at Parsons School of Design. She subsequently, (30 years later), received her MFA in graphic design from VCFA, Vermont College of Fine Arts.
Sondra’s work explores the juxtaposition of the absurd combined with chance, the distressed and the intangible. Her scope moves from micro, creating forms with found objects and the influence of time, to macro, developing large scale interdisciplinary endeavors. Her work in performance, pedagogy and design have melded into years of formative and collaborative projects. traversingwithonions, a site-specific piece with 750 lbs of red onions embodies her focus.
In her past life, Sondra specialized in developing promotion for performing artists and presenting organizations. When she is not designing or teaching, she can be found in the Gunks, at times, dangling from a cliff.
