About The Artist

image We are proud to present the works of Sonia R. Hillios. Sonia, an award-winning painter and illustrator of science fiction and fantasy and environmental subjects, began painting at a very young age. A self-taught artist, Sonia worked in airbrush, acrylics, oils and mixed media, creating works rich in detail, color and variety. Sonia built a highly successful career as an Illustrator, Fine Artist and Photographer as the owner of Time Line Studio.

While most media artist specialize in one area, such as technical paintings, Sonia's talent covered a broad range. She was one of the first women to paint illustrations for both the Star Trek® and Star Wars® franchises. She could capture an actor's likeness, render a photographically accurate image of a complex space vessel, or create a lifelike character from descriptions in a script. Her portraits were well received and quickly approved. She received letters of appreciation from many of the actors she portrayed. Her Star Wars Space Vehicle series from the Hamilton Collection was a hit with collectors not only for their beauty, but for their technical perfection. Originals from this series now hang in the private collection of Lucasfilm Ltd. On the rare occasion when Sonia wasn't painting, she traveled with her husband and vast array of art to meet with fans, actors and collectors at conventions and exhibits across the country. A final exhibit of her works graced the Las Vegas Hilton's Star Trek: The Exhibition for nearly a year.

Sonia's exceptional art career spanned nearly three decades. However, due to illness, she has been forced to retire form the work she so loved.
