Sandra's interest in book design stems from her lifelong passion for books, her love of photographic imagery, and her Christian faith. For her, books represent the marriage of her training and interests in a portable medium. The books in her bookstore can be read online; they are also available for purchase.
Sandra completed BFA and MFA degrees at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. She also studied book design at the Rhode Island School of Design, and completed a Masters in Theological Studies at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in Berkeley, California.
