Name: Sonja Kever
Bio: Sonja A. Kever grew up in Northern Iowa and from an early age had aspirations of being an artist. She was a fine art major at the University of Kansas but transferred to and graduated from the University of Missouri with a B.S. in Fashion Merchandising. Careers in fashion, as a child welfare supervisor, and paralegal followed. Her art career was all but forgotten as she married and reared two daughters. In 2003 she attended a pastel exhibit at the North Hills Gallery in Austin, Texas and was awed by the luminous medium. Having had no previous experience with pastels, she immediately began taking lessons, attending workshops and pastel exhibits. The artist with whom Sonja has taken workshops is a veritable Who’s Who of American pastelists: Desmond O’Hagan, Judith Carducci, Claudia Seymour, Denise Larue Mahlke, Eve Larson. John Roush, Libby Peters, and Jim Cox. Sonja is a juried associate member of the American Pastel Society, a signature member of the Pastel Society of the Southwest, and is also a member of the Pastel Societies of Austin, Texas, Central Texas respectively, the Portrait Society of America, and the Capitol Art Society.
