Sonia Figueiredo is a 45-years-old woman and artist from the United Kingdom. This month she has made an amazing and special colored portrait of Mark Knopfler in her notebook.
The pictures were uploaded on her Instagram account. For our blog she told that Mark Knopfler is her idol since her childhood.
“So, this was done just with colored pencils and the idea was to remember the amazing feeling that I had while a kid looking and Mark’s posters, magazines and etc. Mark Knopfler was my idol since I was 10-years-old. I remember running home from school just to hear ‘So Far Away’ on the TV,” she added.
“Think that unconsciously this was one of the reasons why I always had a special love for the UK. And because dreams come true 5 years ago, I’ve moved to England and last year I had my first opportunity to see him live. That was a special day that will stay with me forever. I’ve cried a big part of the concert,” she finished.
Sonia also told us that this is not her last portrait of Mark Knopfler. In the future, she believes that she will be able to make other portraits of Mark Knopfler as well as the other members of Dire Straits. That depends mostly on her time.
With this post, we would like to give her big support and congratulations for her work until now. Thank you, Sonia!
