Personal Property Advisor and Artist
Terry Sonntag, long time resident of Northern Los Angeles County, has been a connoisseur of antiques and fine arts for decades. His broad exposure from his antique business, professional development and antique appraisal practice guided him to a greater appreciation for California Impressionist oil paintings. Terry has taken brush and oil to canvas to express his feelings in the style of the California artists that captured the feeling of early 20th century California Plein Air.
Having enjoyed the local landscape for decades, Terry expresses his feelings with renderings of the Santa Clarita and Agua Dulce areas, Vasquez Rocks, Saddleback, Davenport Road canyons, Placerita Canyon, the High Desert and Tehachapi areas. He attempts to capture the visions of his favorite California artists; Edgar Payne, John Marshall Gamble, Franz Bischoff and many other landscape artists. He has developed his own style and will often work from field studies and photographs he takes from various locales and work from his home studio. He enjoys stretch canvas in the 8x10 inch size. Terry is an active member of the Santa Clarita Artists Association and the Bear Valley Springs Cultural Arts Association.
You may wish to view his framed works at any of the listed locations. Further information is listed on Resources.
Terry also participates at various events; normally spring and fall. Please Contact Terry for additional information or directions.
