Sandra has been a driving force within the business community in British Columbia for over 20 years. In 2005 she founded Vertical Bridge Corporate Consulting, an award winning HR consulting practice.

Sandra’s initial foray into the art world was curating art and co-presenting an art show in October 2017 at the Heritage Hall in Vancouver. Realizing how much she enjoyed working with the artists she struck out on her own and founded Innovare Art in late 2017. Her vision was to curate artwork for both businesses and private collectors wishing to support talented local artists.

In the Fall of 2018 Sandra formed a partnership with Marcelle Adam, an artist and sculptor, who brings a degree in Fine Art and a similar passion for working with artists to Innovare Art. Marcelle is the Principal of Pinnacles & Prisms a successful graphic and web design studio based in Vancouver.

Together they offer their combined expertise enabling them to source and secure the works of some of the most talented artists active in the local Vancouver art scene.

For the past 20 years, Marcelle is has been active in promoting Music Education, Drama and Fine Arts for children, youth and seniors on the North Shore. Her focus has been the raising of funds and awareness for music programs that brought professional music to communities that would otherwise not have easy access.
