I am a young, aspiring artist residing in Benoni. I have had a passion for art for as long as I remember, and I believe that art is the gateway to your imagination.
I have been fortunate enough to share my talent with young artists, in helping them discover their true talent. I am a part-time artist and a part-time art teacher. I love working with people and I love working with different styles, mediums and subject matter. I have done a variety of events from weddings to workshops.
I do not have a fixed subject matter that I focus on but I do enjoy animals and expressive cityscapes. My main inspiration comes from talented artists like Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet and of course the amazingly talented Leonid Afremov.
I believe in channeling my creative urges in order to produce unique artworks.
My inspiration for my work is the miracle of life. As my slogan states "Le fantasie e la natura che mi circondano, creano la mia arte" which roughly translates to the fantasies and nature that surrounds me, create my art. I slogan I strongly believe in and live by. Sonette van der Merwe Art is born out of a combination of my education, training, and experience, which allows my perspective as an artist to remain traditional yet contemporary. Art is how I battle against the indifference of humans and offer new ways of viewing the world.
This is my story, welcome to my artistic journey.
