If my artistic work evokes any emotion at first glance and lingers in your mind throughout the day, I will be grateful.
My ambition is to serve as an active channel of life in all of its manifestations, from macro to micro scales.
"As above, so below. As below, so above."
My challenge is to translate the Universe into art, and share it with you.
Perla Sofia Gonzalez Marinel.lo was born in Havana, Cuba. Since she was a kid, she had a very strong relationship with art. Her childhood friends remember her always drawing something. She also started writing at a very young age.

She has also taught subjects related to design and urban planning at Havana School of Architecture, Gran Canaria International Master Program, and Curitiba, Brazil, Positivo University, among others.
After retiring from the City of Miami Planning Department, she could achieve her forever dream of doing art full time.
Her beginning art media was pen and ink, first related to architecture, and later exploring other themes. She is deeply interested on ancestral ways of expression, semiology and spiritual themes. More than a decade ago she started exploring other techniques, adding color to her creative endeavor.
Perla Sofia has a very active artistic performance. She is a Signature Member of Miami Watercolor Society, as well as a member of Florida and Gold Coast Watercolor Societies. Her art pieces have been shown at innumerable judged shows, and she has received multiple awards.
