Acrylics, Mixed Media, Watercolor, and Collage
Sonja Kuhfahl studied fashion design in Europe. Later she decided to take a different direction and started to study fine art and painting. Six years of classes with distinguished teachers, including a master class, showed her the way she wanted to go with her art. She has been painting now for 35 years, has had eighteen one-woman shows, was in 120 juried shows, and has over fifty awards, including two Grumbacher Gold Medallions and one Silver Medallion. Professional memberships include: National Society of Painters in Casein & Acrylic, National Collage Society, and Lorillard Wolf Art Club. Sonja’s mixed media paintings are built slowly: layer upon layer, color upon color, she manipulates surfaces through various means, creating texture and mystery.
