Hi, I'm Sandra & I'm a multi-genre artist, poet, printer, traveler & mother.
My writing has been published or is forthcoming in The Ekphrastic Review, HAD, MER Literary, 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.
I've written poetry since I was 12 years old. Writing was my first love, a dream I didn't know I could shape into something real. As a grown up, I spent years studying, traveling & living overseas while designing & decorating interiors & scenic painting & art directing commercials & films. I finally got homesick and moved back to America. After deciding to step away from production, I got a Masters Degree in Spiritual Psychology, 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 to lead writing & creativity retreats in Tuscany. When the world shut down in 2020, I began submitting poems to literary journals and bought my first flatbed letterpress printing press.
I've recently moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where I live with my husband, two children, two cats and an inordinate amount of houseplants.
I hope you'll read some work and join in any events, workshops or journeys on offer. Welcome.
