Sandra Fransson (Swedish, b.1987) is characterized by her unique mosaic paintings, which incorporates mixed media such as pouring medium, and depicts dreamy scenes of nature.
Fransson was born in Lulea, a small town in the northern parts of Sweden close to the Arctic Circle. She has studied art and graphics in Stockholm after living many years as a skier in different parts of the world.
Through her art Sandra tries to capture those small windows in time where nature provides us with what nature really is, instead of what we humans want it to be. Fransson’s work touches dimensionalism, so that we may bring nature inside and the outside in.
Sandra has exhibited her work in Colorado, Sweden and in France. She has been featured in several outdoor and ski magazines, for example in Japan, US, England and Sweden. Her unique and colourful paintings can be found at companies and art collectors in various parts of the world. In 2014 Sandra designed a pair of limited edition skis for Salomon Group (Salomon). She is the founder of the non-profit organization Safe Passions (www.safepassions.se) that is focused on the safety in the mountains for young skiers.
Sandra’s love for nature and skiing is recurring components in her art, and mosaic is her signature.
