“I paint my own reality." - Frida Kahlo
"In my art, I wish to go beyond the boundaries of the real world and touch on the surreal and the juxtaposed. I am in search of the beauty and mystery inherent within and around us. I strive to create dreamlike realities with nature as my greatest inspiration."
Sara Victoria Sandberg is a photo composite artist based in Stockholm. Sara has always had a great love for the arts and has pursued the medium of watercolors for many years. Sara developed her skills in digital photo artistry through attending various courses and has developed a personal style in her work where she combines photography and digital painting with her artistic vision. She works with light and shadow to mold the scene she visualizes into a finished piece adopting a combination of photo-realism and painterly style.
Sara is a member of an international group of photoshop artists run by Sebastian Michaels (founder of Photoshop Artistry and the internationally acclaimed AWAKE Group). She has been featured in a number of international magazines.
Sara was awarded the 18th Solo Art Exhibition of Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery (LST). In the 16th Julia Margaret Cameron Award of The WorldWide Photography Gala Awards, Sara received 2nd place and honourable mention for her single contributions in the category Digital Manipulation & Collage and a honourable mention in the same category for her series.
“Being an artist means for me bringing your artistic vision into your everyday life. It means harnessing the moments of inspiration and creativity but likewise trying to embrace all aspects of the process especially when it means adversity and hard work.
With my art. I would like the viewer to be carried away into another world and encouraged to create his or her own story or simply pause for a moment of contemplation. The world is a busy place, modern lifestyles have come to dominate. I hope for my art to provide a moment of respite and perhaps inspire the thought “What if?”
