S.v.Gonia is a self taught visionary artist, writer and poet. who has spent a lifetime perfecting her unique technique and voice. Without any of the usual instruction or training she has created intricate and beautiful works that flow directly from the heart. Over the years Gonia has shown in fine galleries around the country and hardly a day goes by that she isn't working on the next idea, vision or project.
Gonia was born by the sandy shores of Lake Michigan in the state of Indiana. Her father (a university professor) was a Dutch immigrant come to America after the war, her mother a country girl from the quaint, rural hills of western North Carolina. Her parents moved to east Tennessee when Gonia was still a baby and raised their daughter along with her four siblings amid a menagerie of critters on a small farm set at the edge of town. It was in the freedom of this rural landscape of forest, field and nature that Gonia first began to explore her passion for both the inner and outer worlds of creative expression.
Since those early days Gonia has lived in many different locations across the United States. . . always in places of great natural beauty and small town atmosphere. She has never tired of the country life or the demands of "chopping wood and carrying water". Always, it is the out of the way places, and the timeless rythms of nature and rural living that captivate Gonia's mind and heart, and inspire her creativity. She currently resides on a small farm in Wisconsin with her husband and their shepherd dogs, tiny-horses, dairy goat, zebu heifer, bengal cat, chickens and love-doves. She enjoys gardening, hiking, exploring, dancing, music, cooking, creating and especially, all things wild and beautiful.
Book One of Gonia's Heartwood Trilogy is completed, going thru editing and awaiting publication. She is also busy designing the manuscript's cover art as well as working diligently on Book Two and several other creative projects.
