Please visit to view my work. I have been an oil painter for over 25 years and have a vast range of styles from abstract to realism. After viewing my work if it is something you are drawn to and would like to learn some of my techniques please contact me.

Painting brings me to a centered state of mind. This is why I love what I do.

    Sandra is very approachable and a great teacher. She critiqued my work and offered suggestions in a supportive and patient way. She has the ability to look at a painting and instinctively knows how to make improvements while allowing you to retain your own voice, which helps you to find your own voice. I feel my work and confidence has vastly improved with her help. Highly recommend.


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I would like to get to know you and what you are looking to learn. I also would like to know your taste in art, what are you drawn to, what moves you and why. This will help me get an idea of what you are trying to achieve with lessons. Additionally, if you have any work to show me that you have done, that would be great! This gives me an idea of your skillset and helps me plan lessons for you. Each lesson will be customized to fit your needs.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I earned a BFA from the University of Michigan with additional art studies in Barcelona and Salamanca, Spain.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge $30/hour and classes typically last 2 hours. The hours can be adjusted to fit your needs depending on how fast you work and also for how long you want to paint.

How did you get started teaching?

I taught art at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. This was my first teaching experience and I loved it. I was a studio teacher meaning I worked one on one with students which I prefer to a large class. This gives each student more qualtiy time with the instructor and a tailored education.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with children as young as 12 to adult seniors from all backgrounds and all skill levels.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
