Bio: An award winning contemporary Brazilian artist from Rio de Janeiro, Sandra Nunes is in love with her native city, her main source of inspiration. She is the first artist that I have posted here from Brazil. She gained her Bachelor’s Degree in Letters and Arts from Rio de Janeiro Federal University, Sandra Nunes travelled widely early in her life, getting to see paintings by Rembrandt, Velasquez, Caravaggio, Frans Halls, John Singer Sargent and her all time favorite painter, Joaquin Sorolla.
Most of her work is plein air, done in one or more painting sessions in oil, charcoal, watercolour or soft pastels. She plants her easel wherever there is something that attracts her attention, and the locals and passers by, who are frequently her subject, often offer to purchase her work before she has even finished the painting.
Her work has been receiving recognition in important juried exhibition and has been published in prominent papers, magazines and bookcovers in Brazil and abroad.
