art by the feral artist
|Â Â "My name is Sonya Sabanac. I was born and raised in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, former Yugoslavia. I left my town in 1992 due to the civil war and spent two years living in Denmark as a refugee. I came to the USA in 1994. Growing up with poetry never did I imagine that one day poetry would disappear from my life. I lost so much and poetry was another one of those lost things. Finding my way back to poetry was also finding a way back to my own self. I love and thank God for being awake and for all the wonders in our life; I love my daughter Nela and am so proud of her for being such a wonderful human being. I am looking forward to the many new adventures the art of photography will provide my husband and me."
