Sandra Risner

I was raised in Rio Grande City, Texas. I attended Texas Woman’s University where I majored in Fashion Illustration and Art Education. I have mainly worked in pencil and watercolor but since retiring 8 years ago, I started painting with acrylics. I have taken instruction from local artists Stevie Ricks and Juanita Garza. I was influenced by my father, a South Texas artist, by the works of Georgia O’Keefe, and the fashion portraits of John Singer Sargent. I am currently experimenting with new techniques and always trying new ideas. I continue to find interest in painting a variety of subjects from nature including florals, architecture, and from recorded memories of my travels.
