Seona Sommer is a primarily self-educated contemporary figurative artist from Germany. Her compelling portraits promote humanity & diversity and offer intriguing insights into people’s souls.

Seona is also a strong advocate of humanity. She has an ongoing collaboration with a small project that helps children in Tanzania to fund their school education. Other projects are currently in the planning stage.
Her works have been exhibited all over Germany and in other European countries. They have also been published in art magazines internationally. In 2019, she won the audience choice award of the curated international Grand Salon (Bad Säckingen, Germany).
