Sonja Benskin Mesher
Born in Bournemouth, England
Lives and works in Wales.
Studio in Llanelltyd, Dolgellau
It was here in Wales that the work started, and I have worked full time as a visual artist since finishing an Art & Design course in 1999.
The work has been in solo exhibitions through Wales and England, and selected exhibitions worldwide. I show regularly in London, New York and Berlin Galleries. Much of the work is now in both private and public collections, and has been featured in several television documentaries, radio programmes and magazines.
Early design work received an award from BAA and the Sunday Times, and since then more prizes have been awarded for landscape painting, drawing, poetry and abstract images.
