My name is Sophia Anastasia; I earn my income as a painter and illustrator and I am a single parent to two children. After study at the art academy in Arnhem, Holland, in the 1980s, I travelled the word and settled in Bali where I lived for 14 years, painted, made friends and had a relationship with film maker Lorne Blair. We had a daughter who is almost 20 years old now.
I returned to Holland 13 years ago, had a son(12) and live in the city of Utrecht with both children. More detailed descriptions of parts of my life, to be found on page: Sophia Anastasia.
Please find below an interview (in Dutch) that appeared on local Dutch television on the 21rst of January 2010
Beside painting I also Twitter, write blogs about art and about sex, I write recipes that I post on Twitter, I renovate and restyle interiors, houses and gardens. I did an interior-design course in 2009. This was specifically aimed at restyling for selling property. My website PimpYourPalace.nl is under construction.
At the Red Cross I do volunteer work. We have a shop that sells secondhand clothes and I have been working at the shop once or twice a week for the past 12 years.
