Sonya Reynolds is a Toronto-based artist working in video and photography. As half of MidKnife Films, she has made several award-winning shadow-puppet animated videos illustrating otherwise forgotten true stories from Toronto’s queer history, which have screened internationally and been the focus of exhibits in collaboration with Videofag, Myseum, and the Glad Day Bookshop. When not at SKETCH you can find her in the park chasing after an extremely energetic toddler, or singing in her Dolly Partin tribute choir.
