Sandra Dingée * Artist Statement
My passion is art. I love drawing and work in most mediums and with many subjects: Anything that catches my eye -- color, light, structure, tone. I like bold, unmistakable images even in abstract. I like loose, large, well-executed and meaningful work.
My favorite mediums are pencil, watercolor, pastel, acrylic paint and cut paper. I would love to get back into lithography, my favorite of the printing mediums. I’ve designed brochures, books, T-shirts and greeting cards. I’ve also lettered boats and signs. I worked for Narragansett Electric creating a coloring book of Lucy and Lester Lightbulb. I lettered a dinghy named “Thinghy.” With the help of friends I created a 10-foot by 8-foot ice sculpture of a fully-rigged sailing vessel, a 10-foot papier-mâché sea serpent and a sandcastle -- all award-winners.
I’m an alumna of Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA, and take additional course work at various art associations, schools and drawing groups. I’m a member of Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (http://www.scbwi.org) and Portsmouth Arts Guild (http://www.portsmouthartsguild.org).
I’m also a published photographer "Lhasa Research" & "Face Magazine". Another passion of mine is gardening…painting with flowers.
Thanks for visiting.
