Artist Statement

“From the day I picked up a brush I felt I had found my reason for being”.
Sandra’s work is often driven by a strong autobiographical element. Her paintings are mostly an outward manifestation of the world inside her head. Sandra loves to always be challenging herself as an artist. As a result her subject matter tends to varied. Sandra describes herself as a colourist and uses colour to evoke mood and emotion.

 “I am most definitely a colourist and constantly play with colour and form. I’m not so interested in portraying realism, but much more interested in creating a unique way of seeing a familiar scene.”

Waiheke Island, where she lives, features strongly in her paintings. Often the beautiful seascapes are used as the background for a story, comment or observation.
Sandra has always been passionate about the injustices in the world and the interplay of good and evil. Sandra often explores these themes in her art. Sandra has also endlessly questioned the validity of the conventional biblical stories. She enjoys portraying her own controversial version of the truth through her art. | Contact Us | List Your Art | List Your Art Gallery | Site Map
