We’re so happy to introduce Sophia Yang, the newest Fine Art and Jewelry Consultant to join our team! Sophia comes to us with a wealth of experience in fine jewelry and fine art. She and her husband have just relocated to Sedona from Las Vegas where, for nine years, she served as store manager or director at three major luxury fine jewelry brands. Prior to that Sophia lived in Hawaii where she worked for eleven years at a Maui fine art gallery; for eight of those years serving as director (simultaneously) for two of their five locations. While she studied Japanese for two years to better communicate with that wide demographic in Hawaii, Sophia’s native Mandarin served her well in Las Vegas with that city being a frequent destination for Chinese visitors. Sophia herself was born and raised in Taiwan.
“We visited Sedona two years ago and I fell in love with the art scene and the beautiful rocks,” Sophia tells us. “When my husband retired, and we decided to leave the stress of living in a big city, I knew I wanted to move to Sedona. The energy here, the spirituality, all the art, I need that. And I love meeting all the international tourists, that’s something I had in Hawaii and in Las Vegas and Sedona has that too. I love that Lanning has so many international artists and international clients too. I am very happy to be here!”
Sophia will be at the gallery on Wednesdays through Saturdays - stop in and say "Hello"! We promise you will be as delighted with Sophia as we are!
