Ready or not ~ 2017, here I come!

I really enjoy the holiday time of the year.  Getting a chance to see and celebrate the season with friends and family is always a treat.  However, I'm so ready for the new year! I firmly believe that 2017 with be a year filled with adventure, opportunity and I plan to be right smack there in the middle of all exciting things. 

I've been busy~ Ready or not, here I come! The new year brings glorious news from Studio Santeena including my newly updated website which can still be found at studiosanteena.com; the focus and re-launch of my Etsy store and a exciting new partnership and showcase for my fiber artwork at pixels.com.  Come January 1st, please do take a peak at those sites for some very interesting portrait and pictorial works as well as an opportunity to buy anyone of my art images on coffee cups, tote bags, phone cases, etc..


As many of you know, my moniker "Santeena" is a name I gave to my alter ego which was a cute little doll I made sometime ago.  The name stuck and is a combination of me, Sandra and Tina Turner.  Ms.Tina has been a heroine of mine for over the years. I so admire her strength in times of adversity and her ultimate rise to fame as a iconic Rock Diva later in life at the age of 45.  I also started making artwork via Studio Santeena later in life and truly enjoy every minute of the creative process.  Check out just right my new featured Santeena portrait mashup.  I find it fascinating some of the facial similarities between Ms. Turner and myself.

Here's to love, peace and an ever enduring creative spirit in the coming year!

Blessings,
Sandra
