Sara Sandoval is a very creative stencil artist. I didn’t know stencil art was a thing. Apparently, it is.
She creates a wide range of images using stenciling techniques. The is something mesmerizing about watching her cut the stencils.
I was watching her YouTube channel because I thought the stenciling technique she uses might help me make the images I like to create as well.
Her intricate paper carvings are beautiful, even without the spray paint.
I can’t say that I have watched all of her videos, but I’ve seen quite a few.
In one video, I saw her create a poster using USPS shipping labels. It’s a creative out of the box approach.
Sara was born in Mexico and ended up in the United States as an undocumented immigrant through no fault of her own.
I will not try to tell her story here because I'll undoubtedly get much of it wrong.
I think the United States should have a more flexible way of dealing with her situation. She finally got it sorted through DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals).
