When I created Angel of Peace, I intended to convey a feeling of calm and hope. This picture was drawn at the very beginning of the lockdown, a time of uncertainty and confusion but also a time to reflect and to find inner calm. I used mainly pastels and watercolour pencils to portray the angel with soft and ethereal tones and I used acrylics to paint the tree in full bloom. It represents the need to restore harmony, equality, peace, and brotherhood in our society.

About Antonella

Antonella Sands is a versatile artist, illustrator, and educator who works on various projects including book/products illustrations and portraits commissions. She developed a passion for drawing and art at an early age with a special fascination for people and surrealistic, fantasy imaginaries. She uses a variety of mediums, including acrylic, pastel, watercolour pencils, and inks but she particularly enjoys drawing which allows her to create images in a way that she can express the beauty and the unseen that lie beyond conventional forms. My art is an expression of my soul journey: it incorporates personal stories, memories, states of mind and dreams
