ARTWORK DESCRIPTION: Katerina Sonntagova is inspired by the deep blue world of False Bay, South Africa and recalls how, as a freediver, meeting whales underwater was an incredible privilege. This experience inspired Katerina to create her tonal blue watercolour painting ‘Hope’. The encounters Katerina has experienced whilst freediving fills her with hope that mankind are capable of treating this beautiful world with nothing but love and kindness.
ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Growing up in the Jeseniky Mountains of the north-east Czech Republic, an entire country stood between Katerina Sonntagova and the nearest ocean shore. From this distance, the sea was something murky and abstract – something to be feared. In 2018, a few years after moving to South Africa, Katerina finally gave in to her desire for full ocean immersion. Her first snorkel literally took her breath away. Katerina hopes her art will inspire others to step into the thrilling unknown and transform fear into love and positive action to help protect the ocean and its inhabitants, something that all of mankind depend upon.
