Sandino, Noël

Printmaker, Instructor, Painter and Mixed Media Visual Artis,




“I try not to anticipate the initial outcome of a painting and prefer to let it develop as I go.  I often work from my imagination and allow myself the freedom to paint with abandon. 

I am currently working in oils with mixed media and hybrid printmaking styles. In addition to painting and print-making, Noël operates Black Bird Studio, a resource for printmaking classes or press usage.”
