The crazy mastermind behind all this steampunk fantasy art
Sandra loves art, kung fu, tai chi, fencing and dogs.
Sandra Chang-Adair is a self-taught artist that is passionate about delineating the beauty of the human form. She embraces fantasy, steampunk and eroticism in her paintings. Her characters are depicted as fairies, mermaids, knights, heroines and mythical characters in the steampunk genre. She loves interjecting subtle humor in her vignettes (often sneaking in her beloved dogs). Her medium of choice is digital, drawing from scratch and using Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter. She loves Manga Studio Pro for her comic book work. She also loves oils, acrylics and watercolors.
Sandra counts among her influences the Pre-Rapahelite Artists: John William Waterhouse, John Everett Millais; Fantasy Illustrators: Boris Vallejo, Rowena and Frank Frazetta; Japanese Fantasy Artists: Yoshitaka Amano, Masamune Shirow; Comic Book Artists: Wendy Pini, Frank Miller and George Perez; as well as many others. Sandra is a HUGE fan of Michael Jackson. She is inspired by the books of Alexandre Dumas and Ayn Rand. Sandra loves sci-fi, fantasy and martial arts films.
Besides drawing and painting, Sandra has been practicing martial arts since 1994. She has a second degree blackbelt in Budoshin Ju Jitsu, a blacksash in Northern Eagle Claw, certificates in Traditional Kung Fu and Traditional Kung Fu Weapons from Beijing Kung-Fu and Tai-Chi Academy in Santa Monica. She is currently studying kung fu and taichi at Shaolin Taichi Cultural Center in Henderson with a 33rd generation Shaolin Monk. Sandra is also learning Epee Fencing at Red Rock Fencing Center. Sandra lives in Las Vegas with her husband, Dustin Adair, a mobile app game developer and two dogs, a sheltie named Ripley and Freckles the Australian Shepherd Mix.

"Another cliché comes tumbling down. A story drawn with talent and maestro, filled with stunning, sexy and provacative girls can only be the work of an exacerated macho male driven by unspeakable fantasies! Well, think again! Sandy (Chang) is a ravishing young woman whose temperament is rather calm and reserved. She loves beauty and femininity. She stands fearless before the unbridled violence of her imagination and her art comes as a master's stroke, straight from the world of dreams. I've rarely taken such pleasure seeing a cliché tumble."
