Sandrine Colson is born in Provence, France, she is a world traveler and has visited many countries in the Americas, Africa, Asia and Europe. She lived in France, various parts of the US, and now resides in Boston. Her work has been exhibited in many galleries, museums and other venues throughout New England, the US as well as Europe: France and Spain. Her studio is based in Charlestown, MA. She is presently focusing on mastering her art as a painter, mixed media and jewelry artist.
Sandrine is a versatile artist working in acrylic and mixed media abstract compositions, referencing natural forms and movement, filled with bright paint swirls, playful paper cut-outs, and three-dimensional objects, resulting in richly textured abstract canvases with intricate layering. Her work is a continuing experimentation with form, color, and medium. It is a snap-shot representation of stories that unveil under her brush, or through various mixed-media, letting innovation and creativity materialize on the canvas, leaving the viewer to his or her imagination to finish the story she started, making imagination, visible.
Her mission as an artist is to value the uniqueness in each of us by telling stories of who we are or is important to us.

Each invites the viewer to let his or her imagination decides where the story goes, somewhat guided by the composition I created based upon my own journey in Paris. This journey is just beginning...
