Sacha has taken photos all of her adult life. She takes photos now at St. Vincent de Paul. Clients there get a beautiful photo of themselves.
In 2016, a painting on a book cover captivated her. It was almost a twin to one stolen by Nazis from her family. Sacha knew nothing about this when the painting stared into her.
And so she started painting. It was not a choice. It was a demand.
Sacha says: ‘I paint a lot. I paint for survival and joy. It’s intense and alive. I have no idea where each painting is going and if I think I know, it never arrives. I paint what I need to see.’
