I’m Sophia Moon! It’s so lovely to meet you!

I am a multi-passionate creative—abstract artist, writer, musician—and I am the Chief JoyMaker at Essem Art Studio. I consider it the highest privilege to create magical experiences for our studio kids and families.
I believe that art is for everyone, everyone is creative, and that engaging in creative practices makes us all happier and more confident every single day. Our programming is about cultivating healthy creative practices and confidence in budding artists and families. To that end, we provide in-person programming in our studio as well as live (virtual) programming  (via Zoom) as well as quality on-demand content.
It is my great hope that our program will spark joy and creativity in your home.
Light and Love,
