All HEart by Sonia Farrell

Contemporary realism... using lots of colour, using texture, colour and symbolism to add meaning and stories to her artworks

Painting of a bird

Sonia started pursuing artist endeavours later in life after developing a passion for doing art as she filled her home walls with art. Now, pursuing art full time, in addition to doing artworks that have significant spiritual meaning, Sonia also does intuitive and contemporary pet portraits.

More recently she has done mural artwork as a commission, an area she plans to expand further into.

Sonia's work focuses on contemporary realism... using lots of colour, using texture, colour and symbolism to add meaning and stories to her artworks.

Sonia loves the simple things in life and has deep spiritual connections which inspire her. Light, life, emotions, connections... all help enliven artworks. As Sonia says, "It is never too late to try something new... Art is a great way to connect and celebrate the worthwhile things in life."

This mural of the Australia bushland was created on a wall of a veranda of a beautiful granny flat that was constructed in the Gold Coast Hinterland... This granny flat is surrounded by beautiful bushland and with the mural, it feels like you are in the bushland.

When the opportunity to do the art mural came up, Sonia researched suitable paints for the outdoors. Sonia found Resene understood and embraced creativity which she found very encouraging.
