Sandra’s knowledge of art has been acquired through many hours of rigorous self study as well as taking workshops with nationally known master painters. During the two years she lived in Paris, she studied figurative work under Jan Olson. Sketching in the Louvre, painting in Monet’s gardens and around Paris fed her desire to describe the beauty around her and prompted her to open a successful gallery in Fernandina Beach, Florida in 2003 after returning to the states. Although her preferred medium at the time was watercolor, she has transitioned to oil as a means of growth which is vital and ongoing. For her painting continues to be a wonderful journey of learning and feeding the soul.
“It is my intent to offer the viewer a visual communication in my work that will invoke a desire and curiosity to travel into and around the painting in a pleasurable way.”
