Sonja Margerison - Art has always been part of my life. My inspiration comes from my Creator … with the beauty of South Africa and it’s people I am urged to catch a warm atmosphere in creating a memorabilia on canvas … a mixture of contemporary together with traditional methods.
“L’emotion en couleur” (emotions in colour) … is the true description of my work which radiate hope and life. My work is mostly in acrylics and oils, but I have an experimental side to me which explores interesting mediums to create abstract work.
Several of my works are represented in diaries, magazines, galleries and private collections nationally and internationally. I hope my paintings touch people's lives with a sense of hope and peace entwined with special joyous associations. My skills are passed on through presenting a three-day artist retreat: ”Runaway to Stilbaai” hosted at the picturesque farm, Botterkloof, 9km from my home town, Stilbaai.
