About the Artist

Sandra spent her early years in Minnesota, moving to California in her teens. She has trained in oil, acrylic, chalk, tempera and watercolor. Sandra is also an accomplished sculptor and a professional landscape architect. Design techniques learned in those fields help her to create unified, balanced compositions.

Sandra has a fine eye for detail, while paying close attention to line, color, and form. Her original watercolors are carefully executed to bring out the life in the subject. She has painted quite a few portraits of family pets, working from photographs.
