SanTara, Sandra

Property categories:




Sandra SanTara has been creating art for well over a life time.
Born October 22, 1962 late at night, in a car on a quiet country road in Northern Illinois. "My Mom loves to tell this one!". She made her first creation at 18 months, thanks to her Mom holding onto everything she drew. Sandra has been creating full time professionally since 1989. Her specialty is New Age Visionary, Tribal, and Wildlife art work. Anything symbolic and with deep spiritual meaning is of great interest to her. She feels its important to keep a healthy, open minded spiritual outlook on life. Her pursuit in school was Zoology and Art combined with a love of the natural world has been a happy marriage in her art career.

"I wanted to be like Jane Goodall and be in the bush studying animals but soon realized that my calling is art. I can do more with that kind of expression then being a Zoologist, though I still fantasize about it. I have a talent for rehabilitating wild animals and plan to get back into it when I am more settled."

Science Fiction and Fantasy Conventions are where Sandra first displayed her art work. The first being the World con in Denver, CO in 1981. She had previously been peddling felt sculpture dragons at the local cons and selling other sculptures while in High School in Littleton, CO. Having been in Fandom for over 25 years and during that span has won countless awards in the Science Fiction and Fantasy convention art shows. Her work can also be found in other markets including the Renaissance Festival circuit, Pagan and Earth related Gatherings, New Age Expos and Festivals, Tattoo Conventions, Art Galleries, and Wildlife Art Shows.

SanTara's creative style is expressed through a variety of media including acrylic and airbrush painting, colored and graphite pencils, pen and ink, and scratch board. Besides the traditional flat surfaces, she enjoys creating on nontraditional surfaces from the natural world. These include leather stretched medicine shields and drum heads. However the, currently very popular, paintings on feathers have achieved particular notoriety. Not only on the show circuit, but with a number of Art Galleries carrying them as well.
