About "Life in Color"

One of the first things that happened to me when I first started painting, was that I really noticed the way in which the light of the sun changes the landscape. We can always tell from a photograph more or less which time of day it was when the picture was taken, and that is possible because the angle of the sun changes the colour of the light and that affects the colour of all the objects it touches as well as the atmosphere around it. It is quite amazing that we can experience the same landscape or scene in so many different ways just because of a change in light. With this painting I tried to capture the atmosphere created by the light.

About Sonja

Born in 1982 in South Africa, Sonja grew up and spent the first 24 years of her life in the Northern Cape and North West. She grew up in a creative environment surrounded by very artistic family members.

It was only after she completed her studies and joined informal classes in oil painting that she discovered her new found passion in art. Since then, she has moved to Cape Town and made a career as a bookkeeper while nurturing art as a hobby.

In 2012 she finally decided to quit the world of full time finances and spend more time pursuing her artistic passion. She mainly works with charcoal and oils. She enjoys figurative work, believing that humans bring life, activity, character and atmosphere to a painting. Her paintings are inspired by human life and the beauty of nature.

On a personal level, Sonja is a great believer in pursuing one's dreams. She encourages everyone she knows to explore their creative side.
