Sonja Moro is a Senior Specialist in the Post-War & Contemporary Art department and Head of Sale for Bonhams' signature Made in California: Contemporary Art auction in Los Angeles. Her area of expertise includes post-war and contemporary art of all media, particularly by emerging and established artists from the West Coast region.
Since joining Bonhams in November 2017, Sonja's exceptional sales have included an important Ruth Asawa hanging sculpture which sold for over $2,000,000, and an early Ed Clark painting which sold for over ten times its pre-sale low estimate. As Head of Sale, she has overseen several of the strongest totals in Made on California's history, as well as the expansion of the category to include global post-war & contemporary art with the annual Post-War & Contemporary Art X Made in California auction.
Before Bonhams, Sonja had over a decade of experience as an appraiser with a respected boutique firm in the fine art industry. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Art History from the University of Southern California.
