Sonia Hamza works at the same time textile sculptures, paintings and photograph during her artistic residency in 59Rivoli, in Paris.
Just after that, photograph becomes her first activity instead of Fashion design, thanks to an analog training.
Sonia Hamza is always looking for a visual writing which would combine textile and photograph, which are both her favorite domains.
Because she doesn't want to give up textile, she studied with Claude-Marie Thibert-Boutou, "Meilleur Ouvrier de France" - a creator and maker of tapestry sculptures- tapestry-liciery.
The artistic approach of this great artist and her career as a woman artist inspires Sonia Hamza.
