About JacQueline Sanchez

20 years ago, I fell in love with LEGO bricks. I was always inspired by architecture and love the connection and possibilities they can provide me as an art medium to create my work. I cut, sand, drill, and sandblast each LEGO piece. Sandblasting achieves a matte finish that creates simplicity to a shiny beautiful toy brick. LEGO represents a lot for many people, so I try and honor that with each piece. One of the many things I love about being an artist is knowing that in a small way I’m bringing a bit of joy to people’s lives. My work has an innocence that makes the wearer smile. Our world is so frenetic and at times feels so complicated. It’s easy to forget the simple things that bring happiness. The newer collection is full of bright colors needed in our wardrobe today.
