Bio of  Sandi Wilson Abstract paintings by Sandi Wilson

About the artist

Sandi is a self taught painter who wanted to bring depth and texture to her travel art photography. She started experimenting first by heat transferring her images onto watercolor paper then onto stone and now incorporating it onto her painted canvasses.

Like her photographic images she has the ability to bring soul to her paintings. She does this by capturing the beauty and solitude of landscapes and personalities of people from across the world. “To express and share what I see through my lens is a joy for me” Wilson humbly credits her natural talent to her religious beliefs. Spirituality weaves its way into her work.

Sandi for the past few years has been extensively working in Encaustic medium (beeswax, resin and pigments melted) which allows layers to be built up, objects and images to be embedded within the abstract painting.

Being a professional photographer for over 28 years Sandi sometimes incorporates her photography skills to transfer details onto her encaustic paintings. She has been a part of numerous groups and personal one woman shows over the past 19 years.

Sandi was commissioned to do a series of 6 - 36x36 Bio Painting Panels for the new library wing at the prestigious St. John's College High School in Washington D.C. The panels highlight the past 160 years of St. John's rich history.

This piece (titled "Defender"-24x24 Encaustic and mixed media ) was an artist collaboration with myself and Bridgette Guerzon Mills for a charity auction we had at our art show which raised over $5000 for the painting with all the proceeds going to The Araminta Freedom Initiative a Baltimore based non-profit which works locally to end Human Trafficking .
