Introducing K.Sandoval

Artist Kristy Sandoval

With the new year at i am san fernando, comes new contributors. I’d like to introduce you to a name many of you already know, Kristy Sandoval.

Kristy is a local artist who will periodically keep us posted on happenings in the art community and artistic events in the SFV. She’ll also be showcasing her latest work and bringing attention to artists or artwork from the area.

Kristy, sometimes known as K. Sandoval, grew up in Pacoima and studied interactive media at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. She eventually returned home and facilitated mural design classes for Youth Speak Collective and other nonprofits, such as GRYD at El Nido Family Centers, Friends of the Family and EduCare.

Kristy has created a handful of murals in collaboration with several middle and high school students from San Fernando, Pacoima, Sylmar and Panorama City. She currently stays busy with painting and building art curriculum for elementary schools.

Check out some of Kristy’s work on her Facebook page and hit her up on Twitter if you think there’s something she should be covering.
