Artist Statement
For the last few years, in the Shared Consciousness series, I’ve been working with the challenge of combining a decades-long interest in painting portraits from life with a fascination for the effects of light on water and a love of studying wildlife. This series explores the connection between humans and the natural world on a psychological and spiritual level while, at the same time, referencing some of the markers of global warming and the species affected by it. Water here is not only a metaphor for the unconscious but, on a physical level, the main element in a shared environmental landscape.
Sandra has a BA from Pace University, NY, studied at the Art Students League for seven years, and received an MFA in painting from the Graduate School of Figurative Art of the New York Academy of Art. She has had numerous solo exhibitions over the years, and her paintings have been included in group exhibitions such as the Contemporary Realism Biennial, Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Indiana; the National Figurative Drawing & Painting Exhibition, Susquehanna University, Pennsylvania; Maine Women in the Visual Arts, Colby College Museum of Art, Waterville, Maine, and more.  Born in New York City, she has been living and working in Maine for over 20 years.
