About "Miniature Sunset 1"
To me, a miniature painting is like a short story. It captures the essence of a message, rather than telling a life story. I like the level and quality of spontaneity in it.
Sunsets remind me a little of when I was a teenager. I loved music and almost always had specific parts of a song that I especially liked. I would rewind the tape to that part and play it over and over again. I often wish we could do this with time. A sunrise and sunset can be so extremely beautiful and for me often comes with a feeling of bliss and contentment. I often wish I can rewind my life a little to go and have another peek at a specific sunrise or sunset in my past.

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.
