Birgitte Sonneby
Born 1964
Denmark

In my early twenties I took classes in Kroki, Aquarell and acrylic.
And just short after I started to paint with acrylic. And then there was an inspiration to make art by print, wich made me to do Monotypi, not to forget the collage wich I also make.
But the white canvas, is such an unbounded opportunity to express ones feelings, with colours. And with all the possibilities of different art styles, that one can make, it just makes me so facinated, that I have to paint. Different artcourses and technics have been there, during the years.
Recently I got introduced to an artist who use a large squeeges, in his paintings, and they are so great that I had to try it. I find it so fantastic to use the squeeges, but I also use brushes, and spunges to give some diversity.
I live on the countryside, its so beautiful, its near the ocean -Kattegat, north-west Zealand, here is a lot of beaches around, wich give a speciel light to the area. Just like the light they have in Skagen, - the fare most north of Denmark.
The history tells that the artist who lived 100 years agoe, they came from Copenhagen to Rørvig and Skagen because of the light we have.

 

 

Art

My style up to now, has been very wide, wich you can see under my art history. I have sold my art to the Us and Canada, but mainly to the Danish people, both abstract and impressionistic.
I have held exhibitions since 1999 In 2007 I were teaching art to different compagnies, ex.
Saxo Bank and Accenture. It was art courses for 30 - 40 people to enhance their corporation.
I started to teach art at Rørvig folkhighschool, 2009. And I teach art in a day and evening school, FOF since
sept. 2017. In spring 2018 I opened my own gallery.
