Sandra Pérez-Ramos is a Puerto Rican visual artist that lives in MD. She is a lover of all things design and an avid collector of vintage objects and textiles from every continent. The magnificent patterns in handmade fabrics and folk art serve as inspiration for her latest Neo-Primitive illustrations in ink. These standout for their intricate details, which contrast with their contemporary, graphic style. She explores Magical Realism and mythology as themes. In most of her drawings you can find whimsical plants, animals or characters that are connected to or pursue the moon. These and her photography and fiber artworks have been juried into important art shows and biennials throughout Puerto Rico, Cuba and the US.
Sandra graduated from the School of Public Communications of the University of PR, where she majored in visual arts for communications (design, silk screen printmaking and photography). She continued independent studies in fibers, clay, sculpture and painting in PR and DC. While living in PR, she taught design, photography and drawing in a private high school for several years. Then, she created, managed and did visual merchandising for República Kachibache, a bazaar for emerging arts, vintage fashion, recycled furniture in Old San Juan, PR.
After relocating to the DC Metro area, she worked as interior design consultant. She is an active member of the Montgomery Art Association in MD, where she serves as the Membership Committee Chair and is also the Vice-President and Media Coordinator of The Latino Art League of Greater Washington DC.
