Studio Sandra Recio
Passionate about Art & People
Graduated in Art History specialized in Hispanic and Italian contemporary art, I have worked for more than 15 years on the international contemporary art scene, in public institutions and recognized private structures.
I have founded and managed my own gallery in Geneva since 2010, the Studio Sandra Recio, where I exhibited and participated in the professional development of many emerging and established contemporary artists.
Today, Studio Sandra Recio's activity has evolved towards the creation and management of large public and private cultural projects.
I also work as coach and Mentor (Diplom Coach SCI) to support visual artists, curators, photographers, gallerists, writers, actors, or any creative professionals, both in their professional development and personal balance.

Cultural Project Management
The Studio Sandra Recio actively develops and manages complex cultural projects and artistic events, for private and public organizations.
Curatorship of contemporary art exhibitions in public or private space
Strategic and artistic developments of art foundations
Management and enhancement of private art collections
Organization of conferences with recognized artists and high-level speakers
Development and management of exhibitions or artistic events in international fairs or Biennales
Organization of cultural seminaries to develop external customer relations or internal team building
Throughout my career, I have worked to promote contemporary creation and to accompany emerging and recognized artists in the accomplishment of their artistic projects.
Whether it was in renowned international contemporary art galleries, in public cultural institutions or in the gallery I founded and managed during 8 years, my focus was always to support artists development on the long run, to help them to find a balance between their artistic career and personal life.
It meant immersing myself in the intimacy of the artist, of the creative process, but also being able to give practical advise on artwork organization, presentation, external communication, career management, personal and financial objectives.
My experience as entrepreneur and training as Certified Coach (Master in entrepreneurial Coaching & Mentoring) improved my comprehensive skills and enabled me to develop personalised coaching programs for Creatives.
I look forward to sharing them with you!
Coaching, Mentoring & Training
The original coaching methods that I have developed are based on individual psychology initiated by Alfred Adler, using brief solution-oriented coaching and systemic coaching tools.
The Sessions are designed to empower visual artists, curators, photographers, gallerists, writers, actors, or any creative professional, both in their professional development and in their personal balance.
Programs are designed in 6 or 12 sessions of 90 minutes and take three to six months depending on coaching rhythm and objectives.

« Knowing yourself is vital to building a life you want to live. Sandra’s coaching sessions helped me to understand myself better, so that I could build an artistic career that is true to me.
The sessions provided the missing key piece to my years of art education. I now have a very clear set of concrete, actionable steps I can take to help me share my artistic practice with those who appreciate it. »
E. Diazoni, visual artist, L.A./Zürich
« The meeting with Sandra and with the coaching were very beneficial for me because I was able to get practical answers to my questions and concrete advice. Her encouragement helped me and our meetings were super friendly and enriching»
C. Desmoinaux, book illustrator and artist, Paris/Zürich
«Particularly strengthening and encouraging for me were drafting my artist’s statement & Bio.
Be able to focus on a path forward and understanding a path forward were concrete effects of the sessions.
G. Guercia, photographer, Cape Town
"Each session was an opportunity for me to really reflect with heart and mind.
Sandra helped me to formulate my goals, my assets, my values, who I am as an artist, my needs, my road ahead.
All of these sessions have built a solid foundation for change, the continuity of my successes and of course to reach the goals I set at the very beginning."
J. Bleitrach, actor, Paris
"Creativity takes courage"
Coaching sessions can take place online or face-to-face in Zurich.
