“I believe there is a story in everything, and often draw inspiration in the mundane.”

Sandra Dumais' work is inspired by her childhood, children, and the "funny, tender world" around her. "I believe there is a story in everything, and often draw inspiration in the mundane," she says. She took to drawing at a young age, making books out of the musty rolls of wallpaper she found in her linen closet. Her artworks feature a mix of illustration, painting, and digital drawing, culminating in pieces that weave tales through words and images.
