Studio Tour Extra: Sandra Sallin

Sandra Sallin paints luminous florals in her Hollywood Hills studio, a renovated garage/carport. In the September 2008 issue of The Artist’s Magazine, we gave you a tour of her studio. You can see some extra photos below.

This view of Sallin’s studio shows the outside of her remodeled
 carport/garage, including the two pyramid-shaped skylights.

Sallin calls her Magni-Viewer, which she bought years ago
through an ad in an art magazine, an “invaluable tool.”


With her Magni-Viewer, she can look through a lens at a
 slide (placed in a holding clip) and see the magnified
details of her original photograph.

This Euro-style taboret made by Neolt in Italy,
with its many storage crannies, keeps Sallin’s
pencils, graphite and erasers readily available
while she’s at her drawing table.

attached to a flexible arm.

Sallin keeps all her framing tools on top of her flat file,
which sits beneath her gesso table.

Here’s a better view of Sallin’s organized closet
with her business supplies and promotional materials.

Sallin says her clogs are very important to her physical
comfort while painting: “I find them indispensable when
I’m standing at my easel.” You can find them at
