Biography

Birgitte Bjerring Sonneby
Born 1964 Cph.

From 1987 where I began to draw kroki and paint with aquarell with an danish artist in Copenhagen I Later In 1991 got to paint with acrylic, taught by different talented artist.

Since 1991 where meditation became a new dimension in my life, I feel more alive and more conscious from within, and much more rested and free in my body. So the daily meditation TM Transcedental Meditation, has been giving me more energy, creativity, peace, joy and courage, another inspiration and dimension in my art expression.
Now I work full time, painting my stories, In these lovely sourroundings out on the countryside where I live on a farm, with the beauty of nature, in fresh air and peace.
I often tell my stories with several layers and forms of paint, that gives different interesting shapes. I like to use all colours, as long as they are In tune with one another!
I like when my painting take the audience to a level where they cant "look through it" and that they find their own storie.!!
My style has been very wide...during the last 25 years.
But I feel much more into the Abstract paintings of mine. You will see the difference from the first paintings of flowers, to my "new" stories In the abstract paintings : New styles.

To explorer one self and to express it, is such a joy.

In 1999 I had my first exhibition in different compagnies. Since then I have been teaching private artclasses.
I also do one day art workshops in compagnies.
Sinde 2009 I become artteacher at Rørvig folkhighschool.
Wich I still do during some of their art courses

Personal Styles

Birgitte Bjerring Sonneby
Born 1964 Cph.

In my paintings I often tell my stories with several layers shapes and forms of paint. I am a composer of my stories. And I love to use all colours, and to bring a sense of humor In my paintings.
I like when my painting take the audience to a level where they cant "look through it" and that they find their own storie.!!
My style has been very wide...during the last 25 years.
But I feel much more into the Abstract paintings of mine. You Will See from the oldest paintings of Flowers when I started to paint, to my "new" stories In the Abstract paintings...under : new styles.
In my latest painting, my expression is so that I tell my story of our time!!

"Birgitte Bjerring Sonneby´s sensitive paintings opens up to the dreaming worlds diversity and speak to the memory and fantasy. Each painting holds a kind of sophisticated concentration and is a expression of the feeling she wished to give form through the materiel". L.P.Dannerby!

Through the years I have developed different styles. These styles are the foundation of my art and a natural inspiration in my work.

My Philosophy

I experience that beyond everything there is a spiritual being. If we connect our mind with that being, then we experience unboundednes and happiness, a freedom from time and space. That is possible through creativity, etc. meditation, - to have that awareness with you while you are doing other things, that is what makes us happy in our actions! And that is what it`s all about isn`t it?
