Manon Sander 




Manon Sander tells The Rickie Report, ”I paint things in my neighborhood, things of my daily life which seem ordinary, but for me it’s less about what I’m actually painting and more about my fascination with the effect of light of objects. Painting in oil, oftentimes from life I put my impressions down in thick juicy brushstrokes, aiming to capture the essence and the light on my subject matter and the feelings it evokes in me. “



“Favorite Toy” by Manon Sander



A native of Germany, she painted murals professionally in Chicago for a decade and a half and studied oil painting under the tutelage of well known Californian painters. During that time she developed a unique, glowing style, avidly collected throughout the United States.  “Painting is my way to bring attention to the beauty found everywhere in our immediate surroundings, seen by those who are willing to slow down and look”.


“Secret Garden” by Manon Sander



Manon says, “I find inspiration for my next painting not necessarily in an object considered beautiful in the conventional sense since my desire to paint is mostly ignited by watching the light hitting an object a certain way. Illuminating something in all its brilliance while creating wonderful colors and designs in the shadows, light has the power to elevate an object from the mundane to the exquisite. How light influences color has been a source of endless fascination for me. Expressing my joie de vivre through loose brushstrokes in combination with a well thought-through design and a vibrant color choice translates into a painting that resonates not only with me as artist but also with the viewer, offering him a view of things that might otherwise have gone unnoticed”.
