Sandra Rocha has been been painting professionally for the past 20 years. She graduated with a BFA from Rhode Island College in 2000, and then went on to study painting at the Art Students League of New York. She also studied Textile Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. She lived and worked in Brooklyn, NY for 14 years before moving across country to Los Angeles with her husband and daughter. The differing landscape of the west has her excited and inspired to explore some new ideas for her work.
