Sandra Harris was born in North Vancouver, British Columbia in 1983. She spent her childhood playing team sports, re-drawing comic book illustrations, and exploring the rugged shorelines and forested mountains of the west coast with her family and friends.
The subject matter of her paintings primarily deals with western Canada`s natural landscapes. Created with acrylic paints on canvas, she works from imagery she has collected herself of places that she has physically experienced via sea kayaking or on foot. Thus, the goal of her work is to relate the vibrancy of these landscapes to the viewer.
She received her Bachelor Of Fine Arts Degree With Distinction from the University of Victoria in 2007. Sandra currently lives and works in North Vancouver, Canada.
