Sandra Iafrate works primarily in oil, using intricate compositions and combination of contemporary and classical techniques. Her portrayal of nature, floral and foliage takes on complex compositions alive with colour, which seem to go beyond the boundaries of the canvas. She has recently been awarded International Artists Magazine’s Finalist in their garden and flower competition for her work Lilies on Black which was part of a contemporary series of oil and acrylic oversized botanical paintings on canvas. Her work continuously evolves as new works take on new aspects of her technique discoveries.
"I always try to find a new process but still include traditional oil painting. It is difficult for me to paint the same way twice. There is always something I do that changes and it seems to keep the process fresh and interesting."
