Sofiya Inger

Sofiya Inger was born in Northern Russian city of Kirov, a place steeped in ancient history, traditions, folk art, and surrounded by magnificent pine forests.

In 1991, after leaving her home country, Sofiya immigrated to United States, first to New York, then to Indiana. Inspired by colors and textures of cloth, and by the beauty of Nature, her work is emotional, inventive, and woven with personal stories. She exhibits locally and in surrounding states, has paintings in corporate and private collections, including Kinsey Institute of Indiana University, Cummins Engine, and Fairbanks Hospital. In 2011, Sofiya Inger received the first Faculty of the Year “Skip McKinney Award” at Indianapolis Art Center, followed by an immersive installation “Story Dome."
