Sofie Ramos is a full-time artist based in LA and San Francisco and is best known for her large-scale sculptural installations of vibrantly painted and precariously placed household forms and textures that imagine and bring to life other worlds inside/alongside/underneath our own and offer alternative existences for abandoned or forgotten objects. Her practice playfully appropriates elements from everyday domestic life to build up fantastical site-specific compositions that uniquely respond/adapt to, fuse with, and adulterate each new space they inhabit.

Sofie’s Treefort exhibition at LED is also part of LED’s Artist Haven residency.

Sea of Doom (aka Kristin Scholz) is a visual artist working predominantly in paint and fiber. Coming of age in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Kristin was interested in nature, mythological creatures, and her inner world. Her eventual artistic endeavors, collectively bold and graphic in nature, would be informed by the cathartic musical influence of punk and riot grrl, as well as the skate and street art subcultures of her youth. Kristin later attended MICA in Baltimore where she was awarded her BFA in Illustration in 2005.
