Artist Sonja Strausz was born in Graz, Austria where she lived the first seven years of her life. After moving to Winnipeg, Sonja explored her new country, often
with a sketch book or camera in hand. Through mixed media she loves to depict her environment and often includes
found pieces in her work. “My works are often inspired by my spiritual connection with nature or by man-made structures interacting with their environment. My photos document my emotional interaction and interpretation of a moment in time”. By combining both her photography with her mixed media realistic or abstract painting style she hopes to interpret
either the human spirit, the passage of time or even perhaps invoke memories. Sonja invites you to find your own personal meaning in her unique one-of-a- kind explorations.
“The Planit Restaurant and Lounge provides the perfect atmosphere for my for my mixed media interpretations”.
