I would rather tell you something about myself as a creative person. I have always been curious, even as a child. I remember pulling apart my micky mouse radio to see how it worked, and successfully putting it back together again. I also remember finding paint brushes and pink primer in the family garage and proceeded to paint the family car, the fence, the slate in the garden, my trike and my doll…. All pink. I also drew on the walls, in my books and on my clothes!

Curiosity is always there, the questioning of why and what if, and the courage to try.

A multimedia artist and designer who is interested in community and connections. Over the last 20 years has developed site-specific works and costumes for various companies and festivals.

Sonja’s most recent work has included performing SkinMusic, a Bacterial Cellulose instrument at Mona Foma (2019/2021). DJBC at Junction 2021. The large wings at Junction 2020 were also Sonja’s work.
