 Sandra Ayala is a self-taught visual artist/photographer born and raised in the South Bronx; liberating her mind by creating works of art which speak to her emotionally and free her from everyday life. By using familiar subjects to create one of a kind fine art portraits Sandra is able to capture the viewer’s attention and bring forth emotions and visions from within her head onto a canvas. Working with children has opened up a new world that can only be brought forth by the innocence and honesty of a child.
