Elsie Sanchez first discovered her love of surfaces and what lies beneath them as a child in Cuba. Her woven-like paintings merge a physical and immaterial reality.
Sanchez earned her MFA and BFA (Summa Cum Laude) from the Ohio State University. She is represented by Keny Galleries, and has also exhibited her paintings at Southern Ohio Museum, Richard M. Ross Museum, and Carnegie Gallery. The Strathmore Arts Center in Bethesda, Maryland also featured her work.
Among her honors, Sanchez has received an Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award and numerous grants and awards from the Greater Columbus Arts Council including the Arts Partnership Award.
