Come to the Key Biscayne Library and view the artwork of Sandra Epps now through December 30 as part of Miami Heritage Month.
A Charlotte, North Carolina native living in Miami, Sandra Epps was born to parents of New Orleans French Creole, Choctaw, Mexican and Cuban roots. Epps creates canvas artworks, watercolor and mixed media. Using the process of meditation and visualization, she uses a technique of painting with her hands, pushing and moving the paint onto the canvas with her fingers and then uses India ink to further define the piece. Epps uses bright colors and metallic pigments to bring forth inner power and fiery passion into her artwork. Various pieces from The Visionary series were created live, using the energy from poetic and music performances to become enlaced in the theme of the painting. Incorporating words and poems with themes of personal power and love further allows the viewer to internalize and connect with the art on a personal level where reflection, peace and breakthrough can be manifested.
