About

Karla Sosa was born in Merida, Yucatan in 1984. In 2010, after receiving her Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design, she decided to move to North Carolina where in 2014 she changed gears and started working as a self-taught professional artist participating in her first solo show and multiple group exhibitions in diverse cultural centers. Sosa is currently living and working in Merida, Yucatan where she keeps pursuing her art career.

Since the beginning, mental, emotional and physical health have been her main focus. Karla’s intention is to represent in a graphic way the journey to wholeness that the majority of humankind experience at some point in life. Paper is her preferred medium because of its humble and versatile qualities, it is also a symbol of transformation as she compares cut paper with a person looking to remove what is not serving to be able to experience well being.
