About "Miniature Rain 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. South Africa is a country of great diversity. This is not only true of the people, but also of weather patterns. Growing up in the very dry Northern Cape region of South Africa, my first recollection of a misty morning was when I was almost fourteen years – a morning which I remember very well for many reasons, including the mist. If you are born in Cape Town, you definitely won’t have to wait for thirteen years to experience a misty morning for the first time. Here, mist and rain are companions who arrive every winter for quite a long stay.

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.
