Sanz began to draw at an early age, inheriting the artistic talent of her father, who was an excellent sketcher and enthusiastic painter. During teenage years, she developed a love for writing and charcoal drawing, however, it was in her late teens that she began to work with charcoal steadily, earning various commissioned works. In the year 2000, the artist began to work with acrylics and the black and white turned into vibrant colors.
The artist studied Drawing and Basic Painting in the Art Students League of Old San Juan, under the guardianship of Puerto Rican artist and art professor, Sergio Centeno (One course). Immediately after, Sanz was invited to participate in “Noches de Nostalgia y Bohemia”, an artistic celebration held in the Mayor of Bayamon. Her work was also informally exhibited in Flower & Gallery, a picturesque gallery located in Old San Juan before her first professional exhibit, “El Objeto del Deseo”, in Teatro Coribantes. (Hato Rey, Puerto Rico) in August 30th, 2006).
After various collective and solo exhibits around the island and three continents, Tere Sanz decided to conduct formal painting studies at The School of Fine Arts in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico (Escuela de Artes Plásticas de San Juan). She was never able to finish due to relocation to the United States.
Sanz lives and works in Saint Cloud, Florida.
