Sandra opened ExVoto Art & Design Studio in Medford, WI and currently resides in Madison. Having her first exhibitions at the age of 17, Sandra has participated in events and shows throughout the country and beyond selling work to private collectors.
Sandra's devotional portraits transpired in 2000, creating a new and very specific market. Esteemed juried shows accepted "Believe" and "Raphael, the Guardian" in 2003 and 2004. In 2005, "The Queen of All Hearts" (Jan/Feb Issue) and "The Black Madonna" (Sept/Oct Issue) were featured on the Queen of All Hearts magazine based in Bay Shore, NY. Also in 2005, she was commissioned by the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin for a work to be placed for auction and to be used for advertising for their fund-raising event held at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI. The painting was titled "An Angel Among Us."
The "Metal Series" was created in 2008 and continues. Traditional watercolors and abstracts are revealed according to the mood, but the expressive portraits seem to generate a new audience continually.
Sandra has a working studio on Winnebago Street, Madison, WI. Winnebago Studios.
