Captivated by the human form, figurative and portrait painter Sandra Jones expresses her homage through meticulous rendering and bold palettes. Employing painterly brush strokes of crisp and soft edges with hard shadows that cling to her beguiling subjects, the resulting piece commands the viewer’s attention to both detail and spiritual expression.
“My determination is to capture my subject in a moment of introspective solitude and personal resolve,” Sandra explains. “The essence of the painting is the mystery of femininity - the sweet fragrances of strength, confidence, grace - conveyed through vibrant color and vulnerable emotion.”
Sandra Has won numerous distinguished awards for her paintings in pastel, charcoal and mixed media, as well as airbrush. Most recently she won First Place in the 2014 Statewide 2D Competition and Exhibition in Santa Clara, California for her piece entitled “Time Waits for No One.” In 2007, her pastel painting “Lost in Thought” was purchased by the Triton Museum of Art for its permanent collection - a rare and prestigious honor for an emerging artist. Her works can be found in art collections across the country and in Europe.
