Inspired by nature

Her work is different because she heads into nature with her easel and creates her work 'en plein air' in nature. As a kind of 'art nomad' she is always on the road, each time looking for a new motif. Always looking for air, light and space, because that is what her work is about. This hunt over the last few years has been merged into the book 'Inspired by Nature'. Here you will find photos of paintings from 2015 to 2017, photos of painting locations where she can often be found. Supplemented with texts from her blog, she takes you with her into the world of a painter pur sang.


Kunst in de Achterhoek

A beautiful book has been published about prominent museums, galleries and eight Professional Artists (including Sonja). 'Kunst in de Achterhoek' is a voyage of discovery through the visual art landscape of the picturesque region, de Achterhoek. It is a book with fascinating stories about prominent museums such as MORE, Lalique, Villa Mondriaan, Huis Bergh and the collaborating museums in Zutphen. Numerous beautiful images from their collections have been included.


Realisten 2019

The Independent Realists Exhibition in Museum Møhlmann also publishes the book 'Realists' every year. This year for the 21st time! With work by over a hundred artists, including Sonja. Each artist is represented by two works spread over two pages, often with their own accompanying text. There is a preface written by Rob Møhlmann with some reflections on "realism" and art. And an article about the enormous (exponential) acceleration of the image since the first man on earth. A heavy topic, but written lightly.
