During her 40 years as a professional artist and tutor, Sandra has honed her skills in all mediums, covering all subjects. Her personal love will always be the wildlife that shares our world. Sandra will be demonstrating a bird, leaves and flowers using Pitt Pastel Pencils on Clairefontaine Pastelmat.
About the Artist
Sandra is self taught and has been a professional artist and illustrator for more than 40 years. During this time she has had a cartoon strip running for 8 years, designed numerous corporate logos, worked with the RSPCA, the Qld Police Force and quite a few City Councils as a cartoonist and illustrator. She has taught realistic drawing at numerous primary schools with a focus on conservational education, designed and made theatre costumes and sets as well as taught stage make-up, she has designed and made unique jewellery, illustrated 22 children's books and written and illustrated 3 more.
In 1998 she started to organise art exhibitions for art groups and the Inaugural International Wildlife Exhibition in 1999, which took 2 years to organise, was a major challenge with 20 overseas artists exhibiting beside Australian ones. Sandra has retired from the committee although she continues to be involved as a Life Member of the Queensland Wildlife Artists Society Inc.
Although in previous years Sandra has exhibited a few times a year at the bigger shows, she finds it harder these days as her originals sell quickly and she is unable to keep up with demand. Her limited edition geclee reproductions sell well and are available from her website.
Concentrating her energy now on painting the worlds endangered species Sandra works in all mediums and is especially keen on mixed medium paintings. She is an art judge, an art teacher working with adults and children, a popular workshop tutor and is a product demonstrator for Faber-Castell. Sandra is also an internationally recognized Bodypainter working in advertising, special effects, film and events such as ComicCon and SuperNova as well as privately.
During the 2020/2021 pandemic Sandra learnt to teach online and has developed WildArt, an online art school. This, combined with her weekly art classes and workshops, has allowed her to share her style of painting with a wide selection of emerging artists.
