Sandra Jacobs was born in Maastricht in the very south of the Netherlands. During her childhood she spent most of her time drawing and creating. After Sandra graduated as a painter at the Art Academy in the late 1980’s she studied at the Jan van Eck Academy in Maastricht, a two year post-academic institute.
Sandra then moved to Paris for 2 years where she exhibited her paintings in various art galleries. In addition to her free painting Sandra started to work for the high fashion industry. Couturiers like Cristian Lacroix, Yves Saint Laurent, Armani and other fashion designers used her designs to print on their fabrics.
Once back in Holland Sandra established her own studio and started painting and designing for the interior textile market. Her designs are used for bedlinen, curtains, wallpaper, murals, and interiors. She exhibits her free art painting work in art galleries and participates in international textile fairs in Paris, New York, Frankfurt and Brussels.
Sandra’s style can be described as contemporary with a poetic context. She seeks and finds inspiration in nature, dance, music, movies, poems, cities and the world around her which is constantly in a state of change and movement. The phenomenon of colour is an important sensitiv inward emotion. Starting from this point of view Sandra uses her ability of observation while painting intuitive, daydreaming, catching the fleeting moments between reality and imagination.
