Sandra Di Leo is an award-winning Canadian contemporary artist influenced by the American Abstract Expressionists. She was born in Wawa (ON) in 1978 and resides in Toronto (ON). She studied art and design at George Brown College where she graduated from the graphic design program in 2000. The elements and principles of graphic design play a significant role in her art. She works solely in acrylics, painting non-objective art, exploring themes that are both imaginary and real through the fundamentals of colour and form. Sandra's distinctive style captures a dynamic energy and emotional intensity through expressive colours, layering, texture and her signature black markings. Sandra's aim within her artworks is to capture the emotion of an experience, either lived or imagined through the use of colour theory and psychology — viewers experience moments of positive emotional intensity through colour. Sandra’s painting "Sleep, My Darling Sleep" was recently curated into an exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), she regularly exhibits in art galleries and major international art fairs. Sandra’s artworks are in private and corporate collections.
