San-Maré works in oils and enjoys painting figures and portraits. She is fascinated by the human
psyche and body and often portrays the fragility of the human condition in a sincere, intimate yet
confrontational manner. She uses paint as paint as a medium to actually “mould” the subject matter. By
playing close attention to detail she attempts to maintain the fragile, sensitive and tactile quality of skin
and the character of her subject matter.
