Sonia Gleis is a Luxembourgish model & artist.

Born in Luxembourg, Sonia grew up in an artistic family, who encouraged her very early to develop her artistic skills and expose her paintings. 

During her college years from 1995-2000, Sonia attended the Molstudio art sessions held by Luxembourgish artist Ernest Ersfeld. In 2000, she attended the watercolor art sessions held by Luxembourgish artist Norbert Hastert. After choosing the art section at the college in 2000, Sonia decided to improve her artistic skills by attending, from 2001-2003, the art sessions held by Bulgarian artist Plamen Bonev, organised by the Summer Art Academy of Luxembourg. In 2004, Sonia attended the advanced art sessions of the International Academy of Trier in Germany.

In 2005, Sonia moved to Paris, in order to continue her art studies at the Sorbonne University. 

During 2013, Sonia had the honour to be selected by RTL TV Luxembourg, to be part of the season 1 of the Art Generation tv-show, a tv participation which gave her major media exposure in Luxembourg.
