Sandi Hanlon-Breuer spent her childhood enjoying the beaches on the "Treasure Coast" of Florida and her summers exploring the beautiful countryside of southern Virginia, beginning a life long love of water and nature. After completing a Bachelor of Art in Art at the University of South Florida, she continued her enjoyment of the ocean by working on board the cruise ships of the Oslo, Norway based Royal Viking Cruise Lines for the better part of ten years. Lay-overs in port cities provided the opportunity to visit art museums around the world. The art in museums such as the Uffizi, Musee D'Orsay, Metropolitan Museum of Art and The National Gallery of Victoria continued to stimulate her interest in art. Her fascination for the workings of nature and her curiosity about the bodies of water led her to graduate work at the University of Florida and a career in limnology (fresh water science). Her watercolor paintings continue to reflect her love of the natural world.
Most of her artwork is representational and emphasizes both dynamic color and the interplay of light and shadow. She also often stresses patterns and movement in her composition and design. She believes that transparent watercolor displays a special luminosity that cannot be duplicated by other mediums.
Sandi Hanlon-Breuer works primarily in transparent watercolor. She has been a full time professional artist for seven years. Her watercolors are included in private collections in the United States, Canada and Europe. She has been recognized with awards in state, national and international exhibitions. She has signature status in American Watercolor Society (AWS), Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, Florida Watercolor Society (FWS) and Watercolor West (WW). Recent venues for her work include juried group exhibitions at The Crary Art Gallery in Warren, Pennsylvania; The Mennello Museum of American Art, Orlando, Florida; The City of Brea Art Gallery, Brea, California; The Wichita Center for the Arts, Wichita, Kansas; The Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art, Tarpon Springs, Florida, The Cornell Museum of Art and American Culture, Delray Beach, Florida; The A. E. Backus Museum, Fort Pierce, Florida; The Salmagundi Club, New York, NY; The Shenzhen Art Museum, Shenzhen, China; Fallbrook Art Center/Signature American Watermedia Exhibition, Fallbrook, California and The National Watercolor Society Gallery, San Pedro, California.
