Haefligers Cottage

Soma completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting at the National Art School, Sydney in 2001 and has twice been shortlisted as finalist in the Brett Whitely Travelling Scholarship. As a figurative painter, Hill End will offer Soma a rich subject matter. Primarily, Soma would like to correlate the rich tradition of the town with the myths surrounding it. She is also interested in exploring the contrasting themes of isolation and the sense of community that the spirit of Hill End’s past and future evokes.
