April Sanders was born and raised in Houston, Texas.  Her mother and grandmother are self-taught artists who introduced her to the paintbrush at a young age. It wasn’t until her time in college at Texas A&M that she developed a true love for painting. She moved to Charlottesville, Virginia in 2014 where she and her husband settled into a charming old home in a quiet neighborhood. More spare time and an attic studio allowed her to enjoy the process of learning and experimenting with various themes and media. Wonderfully simple things have provided her inspiration- crinkled linen duvets, dilapidated floral arrangements, and conversations with friends over coffee. After five wonderful years on the east coast, she is heading back to Texas this summer with her husband and baby boy. She is excited to see what the future holds for her as an artist and is so grateful for the support over the last several years.
