Awakening is a multi-media exhibit that is a monument to spiritual rebirth.
In her own words: “The concept arose from my grief over our current “collective experience”; our world feels hateful and I find our political climate very disturbing.Initially I created a shrine to Shiva, the Hindu god of annihilation and regeneration, with a hope that destruction might lead to a civil revolution of tolerance and kindness. I continued to build the exhibit around this idea; every creative decision was made with consideration for shrines of hope and my vision of a better world.
Sandra earned her MFA at VCU and is currently a professor of painting & installation at the University of Central Arkansas, where she blissfully guides students to be their best creative selves.
Recently honored as a “Woman To Watch” by the National Museum Of Women In The Arts for her photography work, Sandra is not content to limit her creative impulses to any one medium. Her artwork has been exhibited throughout the US and Europe. Sandra was born in California, raised in New York, and has lived in 13 states. Her interests include music and road tripping.
