Born and raised in the farmland of Iowa. However, thirty some years ago Sandra and her husband, Dennis were struck by the beauty of the majestic mountains on a camping trip to Colorado. The Rocky Mountains splendor compelled the couple to move to Boulder County. From an early age Sandra has always had a passion to create and learn new ways to express her creativity. When she received a Mother's Day gift of a pastel class, immediately she was hooked. Her love for the Colorado landscape and the brilliancy of the soft pastels fused. The duo continues to motivate and excite her today. Sandra studies with master pastel artists at the Denver Art Students League and privately. She is a member of the Pastel Society of Colorado and the Plein-Air Artists of Colorado. And upon entering her first Plein-Air show in Boulder County she was awarded honorable mention.
