066 Be…an Artist with Sandra Davis Marshall : Ahwatukee Uncensored with Howard Farran
Inspired by a love of nature and extensive travels to Europe, especially Italy, Arizona artist Sandra Marshall draws from a plethora of stored mental images she has captured over the years. Sandra's main focus is on contemporary botanical paintings – creating sought-after works of art that offer unique color combinations that are exquisitely rich and harmonious. Her flowers are rendered in rhythmic, organic compositions in rich oils, and mixed media on canvas.
Her love for music is often depicted in her paintings with her botanicals that she has often been told look like they are dancing, and have a musical quality. Her awareness of rhythm and balance helps her to create fun energy that helps to convey the beauty all around her.Early on, Sandra showed a talent and love of color and art and always drew or painted -- receiving accolades from teachers and others who saw her work. After studying color, and painting in her early years in a private art institute with Jean Fitzhenry, she became accomplished in a variety of media including oils, pastels, acrylic and mixed media and later earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education with an emphasis in Art Education/Painting.
A New York native, Sandra is a master colorist and attributes her passion to childhood trips into New York City to visit the museums, and galleries. Sandra's Mom, an accomplished wildlife photographer and gardener, who always had an eye for composition, was a big influence in Sandra's love for nature and flowers. She also worked as an art director for 3-Ball Productions in Hollywood in addition to painting backdrops for the Disney Channel and working on set designs. Before marrying and starting a family back in the states, Sandra studied art in Italy, which led to co-creating an inventive company in Italy called “Porta a Porta”, which means door to door in Italian. Sandra would bring aspiring artists from the United States and fly them to Italy and while under her instruction, the students would learn to paint as they were surrounded by the stunning Tuscan Hillsides.
Sandra has used her combination of color mastery, painting and teaching skills to design a career that has been immensely satisfying for both herself and her clients. In addition to her works of art that she continues to push the boundaries of color and beauty, Sandra volunteers in schools with her successful “I Draw, You Draw program. Says Sandra,” My mind is constantly coming up new designs and ideas of things to paint and I enjoy sharing that enthusiasm with my students. The excitement of each new painting is like taking a voyage to an unknown place – the anticipation, exploration and the journey --- I can’t get enough!
