I am a versatile artist working in acrylic and mixed media compositions. The compositions are abstract, referencing natural forms and movement, filled with bright paint swirls, playful paper cut-outs, and three-dimensional objects, resulting in richly textured abstract canvases with intricate layering. My work is a continuing experimentation with form, color, and medium. It is a snap-shot representation of stories that unveil under my brush, or through various mixed-media, letting innovation and creativity materialize on the canvas, leaving the viewer to his or her imagination to finish the story I started, making imagination, visible.
My mission as an artist is to value the uniqueness in each of us by telling stories of who they are or is important to them. I have always imagined myself as a teller of “stories” except that images, landscapes, colors, flowers, mixed media, sculptures, paintings, and other ways of expressing myself as an artist using colors, materials and textures, are my ways of telling stories. I am a painter of stories. All my pieces have a story to tell. Some for the viewer to find on their own, some more guided through my brush or the theme of the piece.
“Art is the expression of one’s inner self. It represents what is, has been, will be, or is worth arguing or representing. It’s an ever evolving story of imagination.” Sandrine

"When I look around me and see more than people, the world, beauty, colors, light and emotions, then, I know it is time to express what I see and feel through art." Sandrine
