Born in the West Midlands, Sandra gained her BA (Hons) in Painting and History of Art and Design in 1995 at Wolverhampton University under the tuition of Knighton Hosking. Her work then was fueled by the sublime images of the Black Country, and though industry has now much declined, from time to time she returns to the subject of industrial landscape.
Sandra is a qualified lecturer and taught in Further Education as well as working as a freelance artist, and leading community arts projects such. She divides her time between Worcestershire and The Isle of Arran, off the West Coast of Scotland. This beautiful isle, with its mountains, woodlands, beaches and outlying islands, has affectionately become known as “Scotland in Miniature” thus providing her with much inspiration. Sandra has a passion and excitement for nature, its beauty and overwhelming unpredictability.
