Sanders’ work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and has been acquired by numerous public and private collections, most notably: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; Library of Congress, Washington, DC; New York Public Library; RISD Museum; Christie’s Education; Fidelity Investments; and Hess Inc. Sanders received a BFA in Studio Art focusing on printmaking, and a minor in Art History from the University of Florida. Her fine art prints have been published by Forth Estate, Brooklyn, NY; Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, NY, NY; Flying Horse Editions, Orlando, FL; David Krut Workshop, Johannesburg, SA/ New York City. Sanders’ work has also been included in the recent publication, Prints and Their Makers, by Princeton Architectural Press.
Sanders spent years working in the high-end interior design industry in New York City and San Francisco, working with clients and art collectors to place artwork and specify finishes – everything from fabrics, furniture, and wallpaper to lighting and tile. This experience helped to hone her eye and her attention to the small details of our interior environments that are so integral to the quality of our lived experience. Years of living and working in the concrete jungle of New York City awakened in her a yearning to be closer to nature, and an acute awareness of the value that both the urban landscape and our precious plant companions bring to our lives.
