Robyn Sand Anderson has been a professional artist specializing in transparent watercolor and acrylic for over thirty years. After a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis in 2008, Sand Anderson’s paintings also changed. She suffered extreme and constant pain and fatigue for over two years, at one point believing that she would no longer be able to paint at all. With medication and rest, she has been painting again since 2010. Moving from representational watercolors to acrylic abstract expressionism, she has found non-objective painting expresses those things that are hard to understand or explain. Her use of bright, vibrant color always moves toward hope. Since her own diagnosis she is especially tuned in with those who suffer and hopes to be a visual voice for hope and healing.
