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.

Women are vulnerable to domestic violence, and divorce. The painting is of my mother as a baby when her mother struggled to keep a marriage intact after an affair ripped it apart. The apron is recreated from vintage fabric and patterns.
