Artist Bio:
Sandra Scher recently returned to Brooklyn after 6 years away. In 2011, she left NYC for London, where she learned intaglio printmaking at Putney School of Art. When she returned stateside 3 years later, she landed in New Jersey and joined a group of printmakers at Visual Arts Center of NJ in Summit. There she worked under the guidance of master printmaker Vijay Kumar. Now having returned to Park Slope, Sandra is currently learning screen printing at Gowanus Print Lab. Sandra has a BFA from Washington University in St. Louis and also studied at School of Visual Arts in NYC.

Artist Statement:
My intaglio prints are often intimate and inventive. They touch on issues of identity, displacement, and the meaning of home. Many images hint at a narrative. I create the prints by etching copper or zinc plates using acid. Sometimes, each print is unique. Other times, I create very small handmade editions.
