Sandra Hansen Eco Artist

When Sandra Hansen became an Eco artist in 2014 she fell in love with the magic of creating something translucent from leaves and bark. Handmade paper is completely environmentally sound and can be absolutely gorgeous. Its rich texture and its delicate gauzy effects are completely amazing. Paper has the ability to bring alive the horrendous problems of water pollution simply by putting plastic bags into the pulp. Paper is exceedingly versitile as well and can be used in many multimedia objects and hangings. The beauty of the paper shows us the beauty of each of the objects that we love until they decay into pollution.

When traveling I carry lighter weight and more compact art materials such as colored pencils and oil pastels.  These two drawings were made with the beauty of water in both its clean and dirty state.  The planer structure, and the components of the bubbles and water rings were changed to create a picture with more visual interest.
