Sandra is a watercolor artist from South West Michigan. She began pursuing a life long interest in watercolor in 2009 after raising her family. In six short years painting Sandra has achieved a remarkable amount of success. She has won top honors in juried watercolor exhibits both regionally and Statewide, most recently receiving the Michigan Watercolor Society Second Place award for her painting 'Lake Michigan, October'. In 2014 she won the Michigan Watercolor Society Anniversary Award for her painting "Portrait of a Master". This comes after a phenomenal 16,000 hours studying watercolor in her studio and also En Plein Air. Her painting, "Marco Island Sunset" will be included in Splash 2017 along with the most highly esteemed watercolorists working today, her biggest honor to date. Hard work pays off and in 2014 Sandra was been assigned a brush set with her name on them by Rosemary & Co. Handmade brushes out of England. She also was featured in En Plein Air, online magazine, February March edition 2014 and found herself in the pages of the magazine in their 'Extreme Paint Out' section. On March 6th, 2015 Sandra was introduced as a "Revelation" in "The Art of Watercolor" Magazine published in France and the United States. Sandra teaches annually in Italy at "The Watermill", and also travels each year to Bulgaria where she exhibits and teaches. In the past three years Sandra has maintained a heavy travel schedule painting from Vancouver British Columbia and Alaska all the way to the South East Coast of Florida. She has worked outdoors across many States as well as Canada, Bulgaria, Italy and Spain. Sandra is considered self taught but has studied personally with Janet Rogers, Steve Rogers, Keiko Tanabe and Alvaro Castagnet. She has workshops scheduled in New York, Bulgaria, Italy, France, Michigan and Colorado in 2016/2017.

Support for Conservation:
I am an active member of the Bulgarian Society for the protection of Birds. I have supported members of this organization financially when they are not able to provide for their families due to lack of government funding for their field studies. It amazes me the dedication and true commitment to the environment this organization has. Most of the proceeds of my own sales here in the USA go to support the efforts in South East Europe of my friends who study the migratory pattern of birds as they funnel down to Africa for the winter and back again in the Spring.

    "Afternoon on Lake Michigan" 12 x 18 transparent watercolor. - Living only six miles from Lake Michigan I spend a great deal of time there walking the beach in all seasons, swimming and most of all painting. This painting is rather simple but capture the light on the water, the wave action and the beautiful dunes with cast shadows.
