Spring Equinox 2019

The spring equinox marks one of the two times a year when day and night are nearly the same length. The term equinox comes from the Latin word equinoxium, which means "equality between day and night."

Spring is my favorite time of year. It’s a season of renewal and rebirth.

The snow has melted and the ground is swelling. I am beginning to smell and envision what lies beneath. The rich and porous earth. Big fat worms waking up. Flora and fona being reconfigured, all becoming a new song to be sung.

All of mother nature springs from a seed. Hidden in these seeds, we also find our thoughts, all of which would not be without the planting of new seeds, in ourselves, our gardens, our home, and in the communities we live. These are the places where our new stories emerge, anew and refreshed.

What seeds are you planting this Spring? What are your intentions?

Conversations offer a deep and rich way to connect. I’d love to hear from you.

Memories

IMG_0848.jpeg

As a young girl, Sandra grew up in a home surrounded by beautiful fabrics and fibers. This was understandable as her mother was a dressmaker, and her father a haberdasher. In fact, both Sandra’s Mediterranean history as well as her home environment created endless opportunities to experiment with textiles and materials of all form. Simultaneously, she discovered the incredible beauty of plants and developed a keen fascination with gardening. It was her grandmother who expressed the value of being in nature; to dig in the dirt. To be one with nature. Little did she know this would be the basis for unearthing her relationship between what lies inside and out. The color, texture and form found in natural materials, together with her family’s cherished love of gardens, began to influence how she related to her environment as well as her choice of daily activities, and what she put in and took from it.

Today, Sandra uses her plethera of experiences and keenly developed passion for artfully curated spaces, be they inside or out, to enhance the way others can experience their environments.. She has made it a practice to collect fragments and found pieces that speak to the heart of who we are; to glean from nature its intricate design elements, and in doing so weave the outdoors into the nature of all things. Sandra’s work, and the spaces she creates, becomes windows to the natural world. Her expressions manifest themselves in colorful and highly textural offerings for you, your home, your outdoor garden rooms, and even your workplace.

Sandra wishes to share with you what she has learned along her journey...

  • I believe the essence of nature can be found in all things.

  • I believe nature is peaceful and soothing. With that in mind, I desire to imbue your indoor and outdoor spaces with its wonderful elements.

  • The relationship between beauty and nature provides an endless outlet for expressing personal taste and style.

  • Nature is a teacher. I am merely the facilitator and artist. I can offer you sage advice, yet your ideas and involvement should be the guide to your piece's success.
