West Texas mixed media artist and photographer, Sandrena Koning creates in both abstract and surreal styles. She works with acrylic, mixed media, sculpture and photography. Her subject matter is drawn from her environment, life experiences, and a fascination for science. Sandrena was born in Anchorage, AK and grew up in Detroit, Michigan. As a child, she was awestruck by eerily beautiful fragments of color and texture amongst the ruins of the abandoned architectural landscape. From an early age she began combining unconventional materials to create unique pigmentation and composition. Since moving to West Texas in 2015, she has began regularly showing her work in art fairs, annual group shows, juried art competitions and joint artist exhibitions. As of 2019, her work has been published in APÉRO Fine Art Catalogue’s June and July editions.
