Sandra is a watercolor artist from Southwest Michigan. She began pursuing a lifelong interest in watercolor in 2009 after raising her family. In six short years painting Sandra has achieved a remarkable amount of success. She has won top honors in juried watercolor exhibits both regionally and Statewide, most recently receiving the Michigan Watercolor Society Second Place award for her painting 'Lake Michigan, October'. In 2014 she won the Michigan Watercolor Society Anniversary Award for her painting "Portrait of a Master".
This will be a week long studio workshop in beautiful southeast Michigan. "I will be doing two demonstrations each day covering a variety of subjects from land to sea and florals. I will demonstrate my fast and loose approach to watercolor which is support by a strong plan and founded on inspiration first and foremost. I will teach you how to take your paintings to a higher level of professionalism while we focus on strong compositions, lost and found edges supported with proper values. My painting process is carefully thought out but the end result appears loose, flowing and carefree. Students will work from my own reference photos for the purpose of teaching you efficiently. Towards week's end students will be encouraged to bring in their own references and develop paintings based on the instruction from the first part of the week." Intermediate to advanced watercolor skills are strongly recommended.
