The inspiration for Sanguedolce’s work stems from her appreciation of the beauty of nature and the human form. Portraiture and figurative painting are particularly rewarding to the artist, since they allow her to translate the essence of a subject’s personality into a piece of fine art.
Sanguedolce’s early career in the 1980’s focused on watercolor illustration for many different publications in the New York City region, among them Reader’s Digest. From there, she transitioned into working in oil, producing landscape, figurative and portrait works. Her commitment to life drawing, plein air landscape and alla prima figurative painting have always been, and continue to be, a crucial component in her ongoing development as an artist.
