About the artist:
Sophia Turol was born in Poland. From early years, Sophia had a great passion to paint and often spent hours creating pictures. In 1939 came World War II and all dreams and desires were vanished.
She was at the age of 12 when Russians occupied Poland and sent her family out of Poland to labour camps in Siberia.
The life was very sad and hard. Despite her sad experiences, or perhaps because of them, it made Sophia determined to continue painting and express her love for trees, land, rivers and mountains.
In 1944 Sophia, her little brother and 731 other Polish orphans arrived to Pahiatua. After matriculation in 1947 Sophia was offered a chance to go to Venice to study art, but had to turn it down. "I couldn't leave my little brother as he was only six and I was all he had". They lost both parents during the war.
After Sophia left Pahiatua she lived in Christchurch and Napier before settling in Palmerston North. Sophia passed away over 3 years ago and I obtained some of her artworks which I would like to see now hanging in NZ homes.
