Sonja Brussen Plein Air Impressionist

Nature in Sonja's work

"For plein-air artist Sonja Brussen, nature is the greatest source of inspiration. She sets out to capture the moment, the speed of light, the change of clouds. It is an ongoing hunt and a daily quest to capture light, air and space. Nature has fascinated her from a young age, and she captures it with a minimum of human influences. Her powerful works, which connect Impressionism and Expressionism, are painted alla prima (wet-on-wet) by Sonja Brussen. Her technique and use of colour are strong and very personal."

New website

In this bizarre Corona time, I also found the time besides  painting to create a whole new website. It was a long-cherished wish and now it is finally in the "air".

New! Art Cards

It was asked regularly and there they are! Now available in the Online Store: 12 different Art Cards. They are double glossy cards (14 x 14 cm) on premium heavy paper. Of course including matching envelopes.

Store Metamorfose

With a completely new website, a fresh new Online Store has also emerged. In the Online Store you will find available paintings, books and now also beautiful cards. There is a collaboration with galleries.
