SANDRA LEWIN received a BA in Advertising Design, but didn’t really begin her artistic career until many years later when she became a computer graphic artist for the Central Intelligence Agency. After retiring from the government, she began taking classes in fine art such as watercolor, colored pencil, and acrylics. Her body of work is primarily representational, inspired by the beauty of nature, and is not limited to any one style or medium. Her graphics background influences her methodology, ensuring compositions that are balanced in movement and color. Hobbies of photography and travel provide inspiration and abundant material for her paintings. Through her color choices and subject matter she hopes to elevate the spirit, causing the viewer to slow down, smile, and enjoy the moment. She considers her art a success if it motivates that sort of peaceful reflection.
Art to Sandra is a magical journey that she feels has only begun. A better understanding of herself, a distinct style, and an improved technique will be the destination.
