Today we’d like to introduce you to Sloane Sander.
Sloane, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I’ve been an artist for as long as I can remember. My first official art piece was when I was two years old. It was a fish on an Etch A Sketch. To this day, my mom still thinks it is one of my best abstract pieces. High school is when I truly fell in love with large abstract pieces.
Since graduating college, I’ve worked in the creative industry but continue to come back to painting and realized this is what I am meant to be doing. Each day in the studio is a new and challenging adventure that continues to push my creative boundaries.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I create large abstract acrylic pieces on gallery wrapped canvas. I paint mostly with palette knives using bright bold colors that pop. Each piece has its own unique narrative created by layers of colors and textures. I create with a vision of my own but want the viewer to take away their own stories and inspirations from each piece. I am passionate about what I do because I feel like I can spread a small piece of happiness with a simple brushstroke.
Do current events, local or global, affect your work and what you are focused on?
I believe the role of artists has always been to offer viewers a momentary escape from the business of everyday life.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
My work can be seen at Sloan & Williams Winery in Grapevine, Texas and Dear Clark Hair Studio in Dallas, Texas. I also paint commissioned pieces. All of my work and works in progress can be seen on my Instagram page @sloanemadisonart.
