Sandra Hansen, MFA
When Sandra Hansen became an Eco artist in 2014 she began painting about environmental issues. She then moved to creating art from plastic bags. Sandra wanted to become more environmentally sound in her art practice. In 2015 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 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 versital as well and can be used in many multimedia objects and hangings.
Brutally raped at nine, with few opportunities ahead of her, Oprah Winfrey rose from poverty to become an icon of hope and kindness, a powerful female celebrity, actress and TV personality and one of the riches women in the world. Her place is at the end of the Via Dolorosa showing the path from the defenceless slave in the painting the Shroud of Turin to a powerful woman who overcame all obstacles.
