Annie Smits Sandano

Annie Smits Sandano was born in Brazil and has lived between New Zealand and her home country for the past ten years. She has undertaken her art training on an international level: beginning in the USA, where she attended the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design. There she strengthened her skills in illustration, design and composition. Following this, Annie spent seven months in Florence, Italy, where she studied Italian Renaissance art history, textile design, painting and contemporary spatial design.

Upon her return to New Zealand, Annie attended Elam School of Fine Arts at The University of Auckland, where she spent her undergraduate years developing a solid conceptual foundation whilst consolidating technical printmaking skills with a strong focus on wood block prints.

After graduating, Annie established herself as a practicing contemporary printmaker and Artist who  works from Auckland and her studio in the Coromandel. She has had two successful solo exhibitions and has participated in numerous group exhibitions throughout New Zealand and the USA.

Annie is represented by galleries in New Zealand, an Australian gallery based in Melbourne, as well as one in Michigan, USA. Limited edition Fine Art prints created by Annie feature in collections in the USA, Switzerland, England, Canada, Australia, Brazil, New Zealand and Japan.
