About Sonja Britz

I was born 2nd November in the coastal city of Durban South Africa.I did my first drawing of an elephant at the age of three. As it was executed in the sand on a farm there is no trace of it left.The importance I placed on animals as a child remains my passion and intellectual concern. Since moving to France I have exploredmy new environment next to the Lot river.


I hold a Masters Degree in Fine Art from the University of Natal.I have had numerous one person shows, the most recent being L'Esprit des lieux, 2020 at La Cabane, Aveyron. Ihave also exhibited July/August 2018 at Tour Montsales, Aveyron France and at Lacapelle Marival 2019.I have traveled a great deal and taken part in various residencies in Europe. ,
