Born in Como, Italy in 1967, Sandra Critelli began her career in textiles after earning a degree at I.T.I.S. Carcano, Setificio.

She later moved to the United States and continued her career as a textile designer and artist, becoming an Art Director in the textile industry.

Sandra developed her love of art and of her surroundings at a very young age. Her father, who was also an artist, gave her a love for aesthetics as well as an appreciation of nature, wildlife and the beauty that surrounds us.

Sandra has coupled the artistic background from her early training with her appreciation of nature, and applied them to her photographic work. Photography is a means of expression for Sandra.

It is her way of conveying her passion and admiration for the beauty and balance of nature.
