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.

Large Sheets of Handmade Paper

These sheets are all made on 82 x 34 or 82 x 41 inch mold and deckles. The media is the message in that the sheets usually speak to the dichotomy of natural and artificial materials mixed together. We see this in nature all of the time, plastic bags, fishing line and ropes floating in water or sitting on the beaches.
