Alexandra (Sandy) Blake
Mixed Media

After a corporate career in insurance accounting, Alexandra (Sandy) Blake became interested in painting while raising a son. A collage class in painting with paper got her fascinated with creating 3D birds in shadow boxes. Involvement in local art organizations and attending workshops have furthered her interest, skill and art knowledge. She has lived in St. Augustine since 2007 with her husband, Bill Snow, and grown son, Robert.

​​​​​​​​​​​ Sandy is a mixed media artist who likes to play with colorful paper (pre-decorated or painted) and other found objects to create nature inspired art along with Asian themes and playful abstracts. Color, patterns and texture are used to create her subjects or visions. Creating artistic birds have a special place in her heart as their habitats deteriorate or diminish and their numbers dwindle.

Sandy has exhibited with the Society of Mixed Media Artists (SoMMA), Art Guild of Orange Park, Jacksonville Art Guild, St. Augustine Art Association and The Art Center at various venues including the Cultural Center of Ponte Vedra, Butterfield Garage, The Landings, Palatka Larimer Theater, JCA and RAP in Riverside Jacksonville.
