Sophia is a young teen who has Trisomy 21, commonly known as Down syndrome. As a baby, her health was precarious. Before Sophia was born, she was diagnosed with very severe heart defects. Any one of them could have been fatal. She was born literally with half a heart. Sophia had two open-heart surgeries before she was two years old. Despite several subsequent surgeries, other hospitalizations, and medical challenges, she's active and strong, living every day to the fullest. Her artistic spirit shines through her art with a sense of joy and wonder. Inspired by the world around her, she expresses herself with a passion for art, dance, family, friends and fun. She proves to everyone she meets that Down syndrome can be a gift.

Sophia's art is a local treasure, and you can have a piece! This 5" x 7" print matted in an 8" x 10" frame is of her original work "Big Chicken", and is simply wonderful.
