Hyperrealistic Tattooed Paintings at The Keep
Storytelling through hands, Jack Sandelands-Strom has spent the last several years mastering her hyper-realistic paintings in Edinburgh, Scotland at the tattoo studio The Keep. Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota with dual citizenship from her British father and American mother. Over four years ago she made the move with her husband, Tom Strom after her children graduated high school and went off to college. Initially the couple started in the Netherlands then ventured forward and moved to England while taking trips to Scotland, occasionally. The architecture, history and landscapes kept pulling them towards Scotland where they finally decided to plant their roots. Oh and don’t forget the whiskey!
“Tom and I have found a couple whiskey bars in Edinburgh that I absolutely adore. Usquabae, The Diggers and Scotch Malt Whiskey Society are where we go when we want to go out. Oddly enough I did not like whiskey when we were in America, but after learning more about it here and going on some tastings, I have realized it’s my favorite drink. To the point that I love including a nice whiskey in a beautiful glass in my paintings, and I plan on doing more of them.” – Jackee
