"I paint what I love"Sonja (1958) started painting in 2005. She educated herself to become a gifted artist of classical realistic paintings with a magic atmosphere in a relatively short time, by daily practising for hours and hours.
As long as she can remember, Sonja was inspired by The Blue Secret, as she calls it. She has always been attracted by Delft Blue pottery. The same applies to her native city of Delft and the Dutch 17th century painting, who have inspired her in terms of composition, color and sense of drama.
She can not imagine her paintings without a Delft Blue element. To her, east and west, the blue of the sky and the worldly clay come together by human craft. Why else has the Delft Blue pottery become so famous?
