Within Sandra Chevrier's mixed media art, she plays with the concept of the female heroine and uses superhero comics to add depth to her works.

Sandra highlights the features of the female face focusing on each feature separately. In some pictures the female's eyes will be completely uncovered by the comic strips, with a direct gaze focused on the audience of the work. Other photos focus on the lips, where the eyes are covered by various comic strips.

The soft pastel colors and the simplicity of the female characters contrast the block comic book strips used to cover the face. This gives each piece both a bold and soft quality to the female heroines. We are able to view the heroines as strong figures, but can see the emotion in the faces by looking past the comics.
