After her basic education at the Art Academy Artisbus in Utrecht (Holland) and various periods of study and work at home and abroad, Sonja Eckenstein-Schalen now works as a freelance artist and sculptor.
“The object I’m working on makes me forget the previous ones. I concentrate my knowledge and sensitivity on what I am doing right now.
My works are an expression of my soul. My goal is to reduce the subject to a few lines and forms.”
Sonja currently lives in the Algarve.
Once a week she gives lessons in her home to a small group of students so that she can pass on her knowledge.
If you would like to visit the workshop you have to call in advance on (+351) 289 791 982 as the workshop area is not open to the general public.
Sonja exhibits both at home and abroad. You can find out more information about her work and exhibitions via her website.
Some of Sonja’s work may be available for sale – contact her for more details. She is not available for commissions.
