Raquel Sanchez

ARTIST STATEMENT

Influenced by the Impressionist and Modern masters, my personal style in recent years has been effected by water. In my art emerge images of the sea, night, day, winter, summer, calm, storm, some with fish and some without. Each work tells a story, yet I do not illustrate stories. I am inspired by natural miracles.

My visual experience in Jerusalem. Tel Aviv Yafo, the Galilee and the islands of Europe and the USA has influenced the brightness, contrast, reflections of sun and shadow, and are immersed with life and joy
