Hi my name is Sand. I'll like to tell you my own bio, I feel that it is more personal this way. I want to share with you all of my dreams, failures and accomplishments.
I was raised in East Los Angeles California. I always knew I wanted to be cool... but I never knew I was going to create a movement with my art. I can officially call myself an artist, I just love to paint, its my passion. I've been painting for about five years. It all started in 2010 somewhere in Los Angeles. And from that point and on, I have dedicated my days to creating, drawing and painting.I have done so many things, opened so many doors, walked the floors of different countries, tasted amazing foods, fell in love passionately over and over again with different souls along my art journey, met amazing people that helped me advanced to the next chapter in my curious life. And All of this...because of my art and my curiosity to leave my comfort zone and explore beyond my home.You cant be scared to gamble your life away into a world of dreams and uncertain goals. You just have to struggle a bit, wake up and seek to awaken that dream.
I have painted all over my city: Los Angeles, up and down the state of California, fell madly in love in Miami, therefore I painted Miami like a maniac. Next thing you know I'm in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Guatemala, Chicago, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Kentucky, and New York painting my life away.
I have had bad days with no money, situations where I am alone in places I should not be, empty stomachs and endless nights full of heart aches. But my drive and imagination have always kept me going. I am a girl...but I am far from weak, weakness is not my cup of tea...get up, put all that hurts behind, crush your insecurities...and Get it done.
No struggle is temporary, amazing things will always arise once the storm is over and your ambition begins.
I have lost many acquaintances, yet gained many like minded friends along my way. I have Walked away from things that no longer gave me inspiration to find bigger and greater creative outlets.
I have always kept my art close to me. Sometimes I eat, sometimes I'm a starving artist. But I am determined, that my crazy dream of being a well known artist is something I just can't seem to walk away from. The more doors I open, the more I want to pursue.
I have appeared on various TV networks, many articles have been written about my work, i have showcased in galleries, worked with established companies and painted many pieces of art for my collectors all over the globe.
I'm a free spirited dreamer creating murals and paintings of dolls with long lashes just like my mothers.
I paint for the city, the young dreamers and the ambitious modern women of today. Do what you love everyday
Thank you to each person that collects my original work, prints, garments and to future collaborations. I just want to live doing what I love. Follow that Dream, never go on through life wondering what if... and never loose your head over anything that does not make you money.
Stay Cold my friends,
