“There has always been a yearning inside of me to create and to express my innermost thoughts through painting.”
Sandra finds creative inspiration from the world around her and her experiences in it. She credits her amazing husband, family and friends for their support and encouragement. She especially draws inspiration from nature, city landscapes and the events in news.
