An accomplished portrait and figure painter, Sandy Mezinis, NJWCS, is an award winning artist who has been published nationally in WATERCOLOR magazine and has been selected for exhibition by the American Watercolor Society, NYC.

ARTIST'S STATEMENT:  Primarily a figure and portrait painter, I have always been drawn to the human form. Through observation of gesture and expression, I attempt to paint individual spirit  and character. Each painting is an exploration of self and subject, an invitation to a new and exciting encounter.
