Pieces of Color has become my personal statement because I feel that’s what my paintings are about. I believe color is actually individual light and I feel that we express a lot about ourselves through the use of color.
Sandra Bos is an impressionist whose paintings are meant to celebrate life. She is known most for her still lifes and portraits which are vibrant and bursting with color and self-expression.
Sandra Bos started painting at twenty-one years old when she was a young mother and wife. Living in Southern California, and while raising a family, she attended many Universities and college night classes, and soon began taking workshops with professional artists in the area. After moving to Northern California, she began teaching children’s classes in Los Gatos where she met Michael Linstrom, a well known Artist and teacher in the Bay area. She began private classes with Mr. Linstrom at her home. Soon after that, she was invited to help open an Art School, in Paradise, located in the High Sierras of California. She worked as an apprentice for Mr. Linstrom for four years. It was during that time that she turned the corner with her Art and began a professional career in Fine Art.
