“i always loved the idea of living in a fairytale. (without the witches of course).

i draw for a living and my work sits in that blurred line somewhere between reality and imagination – a place where anything is possible.

when i created mademoiselle i really wanted to celebrate uniqueness.

being different – sometimes a little strange – is what makes us truly beautiful (i am sure you all agree).

for most of my work i use an IKEA pencil (yes the one you get for free), derwent colorsoft pencils, soft pastels,  left over bits of papers, some digital collage and a lot of my own emotions.

i then let mademoiselle come to life on my paper, i never really plan what i am going to draw, but i do hope you like it as much i love creating it!”

    Thank you for sharing the beautiful art of my beautiful friend! I love Sandra’s work and have followed her for a long time now. And Mademoiselle brings such a comfort when I see her…a pretty, friendly and familiar face.

  3. I love that she uses the free ikea pencils
    and the amazing whimsy she taps into from her own unique
    and quite beautiful
    spirit:)
    what joy her work brings.
    thanks for sharing, dear Rachel:)
