The mission of the Etsy Fine Art Gallery is to highlight the fine art on Etsy, as distinct from fine craft. Not that we have a bias against fine craft, mind you. That will be for another blog. Here you will find only original fine art. Watch for new openings and special exhibits curated by Etsy fine artists. And thank you for looking. Our exhibits change every Sunday so check back often!

Sandra Willard

I consider myself to be a self-taught artist since I have never had any formal training. I constantly view other artists work and study the masters. I believe that artists learn best by observation and by developing a style unique to themselves.

I am inspired by nature and people. I love the beauty of this planet and can never find enough time to put down on paper everything that excites me. I am in awe when I look at the work of such artists as Seurat, Wyeth, O'Keefe, Escher and others too many to list. I have recently moved to the U.S. and I have discovered a wealth of new inspiration all around me for future pieces.

I have been a professional artist since the moment I sold my first drawing to a classmate in the fourth grade for 75 cents. Although, I am happy to say that sales have improved since then!

My artwork has been added to private collections throughout the world but most can be found in Canada, the United States of America, the United Kingdom and Australia. Some of my work has been signed under my maiden name of Spyth but all current and future pieces will be signed Willard.

Absolutely beautiful work!! I love your stretch from whimsical to fantastic realism... I am especially fond of scratch board and the light in your 'apples' is wonderful!!
