Mexican artist living in London with my lovely husband , our fantastic 8 year old manager and the most awesome pet rats Snow and Sky … heyyy don’t say EW,…thats rude! I started drawing when I was about 11 I actually wanted to write a diary but I was afraid someone could read it , so drawing was like my secret diary!
I found my inspiration in simple everyday life , people walking their dogs , children playing in the park , school run …
The most important thing for me in my work is to be able to transmit emotions and movement , that is why my favourite technique is water colours. I love the strength, the spontaneity and most of all how the colours blend. In my free time I love traveling and learning languages I have lived in Mexico city , Rome, Madrid, and London! If I wasn’t and illustrator I would be working as an Aerial dancer in a circus ! - See more at: http://www.advocate-art.com/community/2015/08/06/artist-feature-sandra-rodriguez/#sthash.pDRKdWpH.dpuf

Sandra Rodriguez grew up in Mexico in a house with a big garden. From doodling her way through math class to playing with her dogs, her creative spirit was evident. Rodriguez's illustrations are inspired by simple, everyday life: children playin in the park, people waling their dogs, families interacting after school. Rodriguez favors watercolor because it allows her to transmit the movement and emotion of life into her illustration.

My Review



What a perfect gift for that special birthday child, whether boy or girl, this sturdy book is sure to hit the spot, and you will not be able to wait to give this delightful gift.
I can picture the little ones face as the bright colors draw their attention, and while grasping the thick cardboard book, just right for their hands, the book sings Happy Birthday to them. There is even a place in the back for you to place a picture of your favorite star of the day.
I can see this becoming the favorite gift of the day, it is so personal and loving, and other elements for making a special day perfect for them.
I received this book through Worthy Kids/Ideals and was not required to give a positive review.
