Hi, My name is Sandra Semro with Art by S. Semro. I just started painting in 2016. I had no idea that I even wanted to paint nor did I take lessons (yet). My friend talked me into decorating our empty wine bottles of which we had many, and that is how it started. We thought we would see about selling them at an art walk. The lady said it had to be “ART” so the string, seashells and other stuff we stuck on the bottle had to take a hike. I painted a bottle and put it on my desk at work. A customer wanted to buy it and order more. Wow! cool. So after painting and selling around 20 bottles, I got brave and bought a canvas. It sold right away as well. Boy, this is fun I thought. So, many canvases later I sell originals and prints as well. Hope you enjoy my collection. Check out my FB site:

Hello Sandra. So in what part of the First Coast do you reside now and how long have you lived there? 

Intercoastal. I have been back for 15 years now but total 26 years

How long have you been doing your craft or trade? 


What brings out your creativity? 


What does your work aim to say? Are you trying to bring a smile to someone’s face or add to someone’s home decor? 

Doesn’t really say anything. I just paint what I get in the mood to do. I am not the artist who paints something to make you look at it and say, hmmm what is that? However, I did do some abstracts that you may do too if you want to. 

Are there any spaces or designers that have influenced you? 

Not really. I do tend to like the beach scenes and mountains and dogs

What is your favorite artistic accomplishment? 

Acrylic on canvas

Do you have a specific piece you would love to talk about or promote? 

I am working on a large one right now. It is of the marsh. Called “Marsh Life”. I am 3/4 done

What is the best way for artists to network? 


If you had a question you would like to ask another artist what would it be? 

Who is your favorite teacher?

What’s the best thing for you about living on the First Coast? 

Being near the ocean. 

How can we see your work? 

FB, I will be putting some in Sun Deli soon. Salt and Soul has some too. I will be going to other locations to see about displaying my art. I use to display at Ocean 60 before they closed. I have art in N.C. where I was raised at The Ham Store, Buck Creek Trout Farm and Sandy Creek

Is there anything else that you want to tell everyone? 

I am still finding my talent. Let me know which ones you like or would like to see
