It's a colorful world!
When your parents are painters—as mine were—it's only natural that you see the world as awash with colorful hues and textured brush strokes. And that deep connection to color is expressed in my jewelry as it was expressed in their paintings.
My mom, Agnes Sanchez, blended color on her canvases to reflect her ‘mind's eye’ landscapes, giving the viewer a taste of her dreamy imagination—which I am sharing with you here as the literal background to my work (as surely as it is a figurative background that shaped my work). My dad also took his cues from nature, exaggerating both color and form, creating a bold, stylized version of reality. A painting of his will surely show up in a future Tuesday....
Bright, landscape-color earrings, sending us thoughts of glorious spring days, inspiration gleaned from growing up in a colorful world.
