Sophia Tink is the owner of Sophia Tink Jewellery Art Studio in the beautiful Algonquin Highlands in Ontario Canada.
“Individualistic, Imaginative, and Identifiable are how I would describe my work. My art pieces are handmade, sketched, sculpted, finely detailed and finished to the highest metalsmithing standards. Quality is of the utmost importance to me along with design sensibility. I love what I do. It allows me to merge my two passions, Art and Nature, to create unique Jewellery Art pieces using traditional and non-traditional jewellery techniques.”
Since 1982, I have been a professional artist and instructor of one–of–a–kind offerings. I am formally trained with the Sogetsu Ikebana School in the Japanese Art of Floral Design and a graduate from the Jewellery Arts program at The Haliburton School of the Arts Sir Sandford Fleming College located in Haliburton Ontario, Canada.
My work is featured in “The Artists of Algonquin” a book that captures works of contemporary artists. I am recognized for my Jewellery Art work throughout the world, including the 2011 North American Design Competition, 2011 Silver Accessories Magazine Japan, 2010 Art Clay World USA Artist of the Month, 2009 Art Clay Silver TV Documentaries, 2008 North American Design Competition, 2008 Silver Accessories Magazine Japan, and 2007 MCWC Exhibition USA.
Along with my gallery work, my art pieces have been sold to customers in Germany, England, Scotland, Japan, North America, Argentina, Netherlands, and Switzerland. I am a faculty member of the Haliburton School of the Arts- Sir Sandford Fleming College. I am also a member of the Haliburton County Studio Tour, Haliburton Arts Council, Haliburton Artisans Tour de Forest, and my art work can be purchased at Made in Haliburton.
