Hi, I'm Sandra & I'm a multi-genre artist, poet, printer, traveler & mother.
My work has been published or is forthcoming in The Ekphrastic Review, HAD, Rogue Agent, Rust+Moth, SWWIM, Unlost, VIBE: Transfigurations and West Trestle Review.
I believe the universe holds infinite possibility for creativity. I know it's possible to move through any world—even this one—as a poet & to trust the artist within.
After I spent years studying, traveling & living overseas while designing, decorating, scenic painting & art directing, I finally got homesick and moved back to America. I decided to step away from production & got a Masters Degree in Spiritual Psycholgy, with an emphasis in Consciousness, Health & Healing. This was followed shortly by becoming a mom. After a long stint focused on my family and walking a healing journey, I realized that I could no longer ignore the song of my heart. I returned to my first love: the page. I also began scouting locations for creativity retreats in Tuscany. When the world shut down I began submitting poems to literary journals and bought my first flatbed letterpress printing press.
My current home city is Los Angeles, where I live with my husband, two children, two cats and one reticent fish.
I hope you'll read some work and join in any events, workshops or journeys on offer. Welcome.
