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.

"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

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.

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. 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 people through their uniqueness 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
