Sandra ENCAOUA is a French American artist born in Paris in 1974. Fascinated by nature and raw elements, she creates in her paintings a changing & free universe where she strives to touch the truth of the subject, to perceive its essence.

Her current work focuses on the search for the transmission of emotions through large abstract portraits done in oil and spray. Each of her paintings has a particular and precise meaning. 

Sandra won the City of Pembroke Pines painting 1st prize in 2022, the Wellington Art Society painting 1st prize in 2021 (USA) and a 2020 Miami Art Grant by Locus Project & the Andy Warhol Foundation (New York, USA). She received the 2018 People Choice Award from the Wellington Art Society (USA) and was honored with the 2017 'Arts-Sciences-Lettres' medal by the Académie des Arts-Sciences-Lettres de Paris.

Her work is regularly exhibited in the United States and Europe. She is a member of the Taylor Foundation (Paris, France), the Jewish Art Salon (New York, USA) and the Wellington Art Society (Florida, USA). Her works are listed on the Art market since 2012 (Artprice / Drouot).
