Sandra Bandes

Sandra Bandes is a Rockland County Artist and a member of the Nyack Art Collective. She attended SUNY Potsdam and  Parsons School of Design, receiving  Bachelors of Fine Arts with a major in Illustration. After college she was involved in many live performance art events as a guitarist, singer and songwriter and was a regular in many music venues and the NYC comedy club circuit. After raising her family she turned her focus back on the visual arts and has been working in a variety of mediums. She has a series of hand painted mannequin parts which she is continuing to work on until her stock runs out, so was excited to join the mannequin project. About her painting style:  

“I tend to paint intuitively, not planning ahead, just letting my mood choose the colors and my brush strokes. When I plan ahead I end up changing it anyway so, instead of questioning myself, I let the flow work”
