Virginia Sandler was born in St. Louis, Missouri and lives in Los Angeles. She has been painting for much of her adult life. She takes inspiration from her many travels as well as the natural world. The influence of diverse cultures is evident in her paintings and mixed media work, as is the power of nature and the landsca:pe. Her materials include paper, canvas, charcoal, pastels, found materials and recycled paintings. Virginia is guided by the process of art-making as it unfolds within her studio. It is this organic evolution of her pieces that dictates their development, and not a preconceived notion of what her work will be. Those who view Virginia's work are free to create their own meaning and metaphors.
Virginia has been the recipient of many awards and recognitions, and her work has been widely exhibited throughout California. Her paintings and mixed media pieces are in several private collections within the United States and Canada.
Most days, Virginia can be found in her studio, painting, creating collage and cutting comic books into teeny, tiny strips.
