Starting out as a self-taught artist Sandra has been accepting commissions for her work since her teens. She initially worked as an artist for a small cottage industry then went on to work as a supervisor for an art and craft based Government scheme. She worked for several years as a photographer and then helped run a small public relations and marketing company until deciding to return to developing her painting and drawing.
Sandra completed a degree in Fine Art at St Martin’s College, Lancaster in 2007. Prior to her degree course she spent a year studying Textile and Surface Design at the University of Bolton. Her images are noted for their attention to detail and this website showcases some of her work.
Sandra now works from her home studio situated in the village of Halton in the picturesque Lune Valley, she exhibits her work regularly, accepts commissions and reproduces her work as prints and on greeting cards. She is inspired by a love of drawing, the process of mark making and seeing shape, form and texture appear – a visual sensitivity. She uses various mediums including gouache, watercolour, pencil crayon and pen & ink.
