Hi my name is Sand.
I want to share my dreams, failures and accomplishments – I feel it is more personal this way.
I was raised in East Los Angeles, California. I always knew I wanted to be cool, but I never knew I was going to create a movement with my art. I can now call myself an artist. I love to paint - it is my passion.
It all started in 2010 in Los Angeles. From that point on, I have dedicated my days to creating, drawing, and painting.
I have painted all over my city of Los Angeles and up and down the state of California. I fell madly in love in Miami and painted it like a maniac. Next thing I knew, I was in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Guatemala, Chicago, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Kentucky, and New York -painting my life away.
I have appeared on various TV networks and many articles have been written about my work. I have been showcased in galleries, worked with established companies, and painted many pieces of art for my collectors all over the globe. I'm a free spirited dreamer creating murals and paintings of dolls with long lashes just like my mother’s. I paint for the city, the young dreamers, and the ambitious modern women of today.
I have had bad days with no money and an empty stomach. I have had nights filled with heartache, and situations where I was alone in places I should not have been. I have lost many acquaintances, yet gained many like-minded friends along my way. I have walked away from things that no longer gave me inspiration and found greater creative outlets. I am determined - and my crazy dream of being a well-known artist is something I just can't walk away from. The more doors I open, the more I want to pursue. My drive and imagination have always kept me going.
I am a woman but I am far from weak. I get up, put all that hurts behind me, crush my insecurities, and get it done. Struggle is temporary and amazing things will always arise once the storm is over and ambition begins.
I have done so many things; opened so many doors, walked the floors of different countries, tasted amazing foods. I have fallen in love passionately over and over again with different souls along my art journey and met amazing people that have helped me advance to the next chapter in my curious life. And all of this was possible because my art and my curiosity and my desire leave my comfort zone and explore beyond my home. I have always kept my art close to me.
Thank you to each person who has collected my original works, prints, garments and to my future collaborators. I just want to live doing what I love.
Do what you love everyday, follow that dream, never go through life wondering what if, and never loose your head over anything that does not make you money.
You can’t be scared to gamble your life away into a world of dreams and uncertain goals. You just have to struggle a bit, wake up, and seek to awaken that dream.
Stay cold my friends,
