Born in Barranquilla, Colombia to Trinidadian parents, Sabina has never belonged to any one particular culture. By age ten she had lived in and visited many countries throughout South America. This early transient lifestyle impressed upon her an appreciation for different cultures and a love of travel, which is evident in her work and through her use of bright colors. She is influenced by folk art, sculpture and textiles from around the world, as well as Jungian archetypes, alchemy, mythic and religious imagery. Common themes in her work are our connection to The Divine– whether it be through love, motherhood, nature, or art itself in any form.
Sabina obtained her B.F.A. Fine Arts/Painting from the University of South Florida, where she studied under Theo Wujcik. She lives in the mountains of Colorado with her husband, two kids and a very naughty corgi.
