From a family of artists, Sandrine is originally from Provence, France. She has been making and enjoying art throughout her life. Initially trained as a scientist and engineer, an inspiration for many of her pieces, she has focused her time on creating fine art. Beginning in 2013, Sandrine has been showing her work as a professional artist. These exhibitions include solo shows and numerous juried group exhibits. Selected jurors include George Nick, Arlette and Gus Kayafas.
Sandrine is a world traveler and visited countries in the Americas, Africa, Asia and Europe. She has lived in various parts of France and the United States, and now resides in Boston, MA. Her paintings and mixed media work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in New England and other US region, Montreal in Canada, and Paris, France. Her jewelry designs have been presented in many fine arts and crafts shows and open studios as in several fine jewelry, galleries and boutiques in the Massachusetts and New York area.
“Art is the expression of one’s inner self. It represents what is, has been, will be, or is worth arguing or representing.” Sandrine


ARTIST STATEMENT - PAINTING/MIXED MEDIA
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" (UForge Gallery). 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.


ARTIST STATEMENT - JEWELRY
Jewelry caught my interest many years ago and the vast majority of my jewelry creations are one of a kind. I’m always experimenting with new techniques and materials so my jewelry designs exhibit a wide variety of styles. Abstraction, materials, texture and colors are the inspiration for my work. I enjoy working with metal wire, glass beads, gemstones and pearls as well as polymer clay, enamel or other contemporary style painting. I draw further inspiration from the organized chaos of nature or art forms. Works come together on my bench as elements find each other through planning or improvisation due to their proximity, association or chance. I occasionally work with recycled objects such as discarded jewelry, stone pieces or chips, sea glass pieces, crystal elements from chandeliers, and more. I am inclined to produce asymmetric or symmetric pieces that are highly stylized, despite the unstructured nature of some of these elements, resulting in what I call organized chaos with an intent, creating wearable art.
