Art and history were always Sandra's favorite subjects in school and today that translates into an avid love for photography, digital arts, advertising, architecture & travel ~ neither of which she will ever get enough of.
It wasn't until her first child was born that she decided to use the “home time” to get her interior decorator certification. She worked directly with her husband in his home building business at Sigfusson Construction Ltd. by assisting his clients with the finishing details of their new homes, while also apprenticing under interior designer Joanne Holt of C&A Interiors. This was very satisfying work, which led to a deeper appreciation for the arts.
Sandra has had a camera in her hands constantly for over 28 years, starting with a basic SLR, experimenting with black & white and spending many hours photographing the classic tourist attractions in the lower mainland of BC. She worked with sketching & watercolor, but always fell back to the camera as her main choice for artistic expression. With digital cameras & Photoshop, Sandra has been able to combine her affairs in various art forms with her love of photography. She states, "I can take images from my camera and turn them into something more than just photographs when so inspired. I have the ability to explore all the things I adore about art, architecture & travel through the digital medium and I feel whole again artistically. Fundamentally, what I see with my natural eye is a broad perspective, but through a lens of my camera there is only one perspective, a part of the whole if you will".
Currently, Sandra has a number of perpetual projects on the go; photography/digital art, video blogging, video editing, cohosting internet radio programs & singer/songwriter.
