Artist from Cuba - Sandra Dooley
Sandra is a self-taught artist. Her paintings reflect her daily life at home with her family, friends, and her dogs and cats in the seaside town of Santa Fe in Cuba. The paintings are bright splashes of color within which the women are shown reflective and thoughtful. Life is not easy, but it is familiar, and each scene is filled with friends, family or fantasy. read more
The works are an extension of her own life, for she is lost if she is not painting. The lack of an oil paint color can drive her temporarily insane, she says. "I have to paint to live, it's that simple." She also favors collage, adding scraps of fabric, lace and burlap to the canvas to add texture.
She has been exhibiting her works only since 2000, in Cuba, Canada, Germany and the United States.
