Artist Statement

I am an environmentalist first and an artist second. I received my first box of oil paints at the age of eight. Since then, I have worked in various mediums: oil paint on canvas, watercolor, lithography, and stained & etched glass. For 30 years I had a restoration business with my daughter Greta. The business was Ingrid Sanborn & Daughter. We restored and reproduced reverse paintings on glass and painted and gilded furniture from the 18th and 19th centuries. Retired, I work in the mediums of pastel, Sumi-e watercolor (my own style) and needle felting pictures.

My subjects are landscapes, with or without animals or birds, in my own interpretations. We all need to pause and look at the natural beauty around us in order to appreciate and preserve it.
