“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.
