         Ink and Watercolor Artist

A Love of Color

I guess you can tell that I love color.

Color is happy and vibrant and makes me feel that way too.

 I work primarily in ink and watercolor, but I prefer inks for their vivid color.

My collage work is altered paper on canvas using gels.


 Biography

Sandy Harrington is a native Floridian and has painted as long as she can remember.

Her background as an artist began in illustration and advertising for the Daytona Beach

After raising a family, Sandy managed a career in real estate, while donating her time

to Volusia County Schools. She produced large scale murals and scenic design for:

the Children's Musical Theatre in Ormond Beach, Mainland High School in Daytona Beach

to experiment with color both on paper and canvas.

             

                                                

Watercolor

Portrait work in watercolor is by commission.

I prefer  Windsor Newton watercolor on clay-board, illustration board  or watercolor board. 

UV archival protected

Ink and Flow Acrylics

Flow acrylic and alcohol inks are on

clay board, bristol and yupo. I use archival spray for fading.


Resin on Clayboard or Canvas

My larger  resin work is on clayboard or canvas . 

My collage work is done on canvas with polymer gels

and foils.
