SHC: Can you describe your art in one sentence?
Sonja Maria: I try to express my feelings through art.
SHC: Has your workflow changed over time?
Sonja Maria: My style has changed over time, I now work with layers and get more involved with what is happening in the painting. Every painting is an ongoing process.
SHC: How can we see t his when we compare your past and current work?
Sonja Maria: I think if you know me, you can recognize a part of myself in each of my paintings. How I express parts of my story through creativity. I was never good with words but in my work as a painter I found a way to show my feelings.
SHC: Does that mean you have improved?
Sonja Maria: I think so. Art has taught me to be brave, to break new ground, to say goodbye to perfectionism and to fully commit to the process.
SHC: Name one specific event that has changed you as an artist.
Sonja Maria: One of my worst days in life, my car accident , woke me up. I think the experience sparked my creativity. It taught me how precious life is and that you don’t have to be afraid to show who you really are
