Sonja Meyer

Product Information

Sonja received her secondary education at the Technical College in Pretoria, with art as one of her subjects. Supported by her husband, Hentie Meyer, she began painting part-time in 1970 and full time since 1980.

Working mainly with oils as her medium, Sonja’s paintings have a strong South African theme. She paints land and seascapes, animal studies, figure studies and still life. She is also very fo

nd of painting the ‘Boland’.

In her art Sonja portrays the interplay of light and shade in happy and lively colours, which create a peaceful atmosphere. This is intensified by the alternative use of the palette knife and a brush in a well-planned impasto technique.
