All of her live Sonja has been a true outdoor girl. Since her childhood nature has fascinated here in all kinds of ways. This love for nature is what she is trying to capture in her paintings. Educated by passionate teachers at the ArteZ Institute of the Arts Sonja knows how to renew herself constantly.
Since 1998 she works as a professional artist, from the beautiful Lochem in the east of the Netherlands. With an exuberant impressionistic touch she makes paintings with a unique character, preferably ‘Plein air’.
Surrounded and absorbed by the landscape she loses herself completely in her work, but if someone walks by there is always time for a chat.
Sonja is getting an increasing interest from leading galeries in the Netherlands and she has lots of followers. If you look at her paintings it is not that you get the feeling that you want to be there, but that you are already there. She invites you into her imagination and brings the impressive outside to the inside.
