Sandy DeCristofaro About

I've doodled on anything that wasn't nailed down since I was a child. As an adult, I've painted on watercolor papers, canvas, theater flats, masonite, rice papers, and plywood. My move into a mixed media process has allowed me to incorporate the techniques of all these mediums into my compositions. Pieces of unfinished or unsuccessful paintings are fair game for inclusion into my compositions, and I love discovering - from any source - random bits of paper that have potential for new work. The "paper and thread" mixed media works have become intriguing in that it's a test to know when to stop. Very labor intensive; very satisfying. 25 comments

Biography

Have a studio art degree from a small, liberal arts college in New Jersey. Because of its proximity to New York City, I had the good fortune to be taught by recognized, accomplished, professional artists.

After college, I spent 16 years as a scenic artist for a local theater. That experience allowed me to experiment with techniques and to feel comfortable using disparate materials. With tight budgets and imagination, I learned that everything has potential.

That serves me well today; I throw nothing away and still find myself swapping one "bit" for another with other artists.
