The skiing artist?
The artist Sandra Fransson is born and raised in the northern parts of Sweden and she has always loved the outdoors, especially skiing. After twelve ski instructor seasons all over the world she felt it was time for a change and started working with her second passion, her art.
The last two years Sandra has worked full-time with her artwork and the non-profit organisation Safe Passions that she is one of the founders of. Safe Passions was founded in memory of her brother, extreme skier Andreas Fransson who died in a ski accident. Safe Passions aims to bring awareness about safety in the mountains for youths and young adults. www.safepassions.se
Her unique and colourful paintings are in high demand both nationally and internationally, and can be found in companies and art collectors all over the world like Tokyo and the Hamptons.
She has also started to design skis and do lectures to companies and organisations, she wants to inspire others to follow their own dreams. Sandra’s love for nature and skiing is recurring components in her art, and mosaic her signature.
Through her art, she hopes to pick up a feeling in the viewer where their own experiences in nature with her art can inspire to new adventures.
