SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA, September 25, 2014?Arizona fine artist Sandi Ciaramitaro has been selected to appear as the featured artist in the special-edition November "Dream Homes" issue of Phoenix Home & Garden magazine.

Sandi will also exhibit her trademark watercolors and oil paintings, along with a new series of works in bronze, at the Hidden in the Hills Studio Tour #20, to be held November 21-23 & 28-30, 2014. She will be onsite daily from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., giving potential and seasoned collectors an opportunity to meet the artist and watch her create.
Sandi has expanded her portfolio to introduce her new series of bronzes titled With Respect. She will continue to offer her signature gem- and mineral-infused watercolors and plein air oils, which highlight historic Southwest barrios, missions, and landscapes. Noted for their extraordinary lustre and complex layering, Sandi's highly sought-after watercolors feature such precious and semiprecious stones as garnet, lapis, peridot, and turquoise, along with minerals like red hematite, travertine, jasper, and pyrite.
For nearly two decades, Sandi Ciaramitaro worked as a draftsperson for the top three U.S. automakers, utilizing her degree in auto-body design. She now works exclusively as a professional artist, and has become internationally known as a highly collectible painter of watercolors and oils.
Sandi lives and works in the Usery Mountains, where she finds continual solace and inspiration. "To peer upon the desert and watch the coyotes and javelina dart about in wild abandon is truly inspirational," she muses. She also travels throughout Arizona, New Mexico, and California to discover fresh subject matter and vision. "Each location needs to inspire me when I am there, or it is simply not painted. Without that feeling of intimacy, a drawing is merely a picture. I want my audience to feel that they are with me, and that they can experience the meaning of the place when they step into the piece."
Sandi's passion emerges not only in her ability to capture the quintessence of her subject matter, but also in the very personal way she imparts her love of the Southwest to viewers. Sandi maintains a close connection with her collectors, giving them first access to her new works and sharing with them the story behind each painting. Sandi considers her collectors partners in her process, gleaning not just affirmation, but insight from them. In that vein, her enthusiasm for art, community, and life continues to shine.
Sandi's work has appeared in various publications, including Southwest Art's Special Collector Issue October 2014 , the Peak, and Western Art Collector.
