Sophia Karina English (they/them) is a latinx crafts person, sculptor, and performance artist from San Francisco,CA and based in Chicago,IL. Presented with a series of eradicated cultural and personal histories due to colonization, poor record keeping, and family secrets, English uses their work to ask questions and keep track of what feels important at the time. Working from their home studio English uses beadwork as reference to the Latin American tradition of storytelling through beaded textiles.
