Sonia is a contemporary artist & illustrator based in West Sussex and holds various workshops and courses.
Her mixed media workshops explore a colourful range of subjects covering mark making, layering and the dynamics of colour and texture.
Her large abstract paintings are known for their texture and layering techniques. They have been exhibited widely throughout the South East and featured in a number of publications.
After receiving her diploma at Farnham University for the Creative Arts, Sonia went on to work as an interior designer for 10 years alongside developing her own style of painting. Now a full time artist she has become involved in various art groups throughout Sussex.

Sonia demonstrates how to prepare your canvas and while waiting for that to dry, shows you how to use the sketchbook she provides to start planning your finished piece. Sonia demonstrates different techniques and has a variety of materials for you to use. She allows you to develop your own style whilst being constructive in her support.
