Born in the West Midlands Sandra gained her BA (Hons) in Art and Design in 1995 at Wolverhampton University under the tuition of Knighton Hosking. Her work then was fuelled by the sublime images of the Black Country and though industry has now much declined, she returns to the subject of industrial landscape from time to time.
Sandra is a qualified lecturer and taught in further education alongside working as a freelance artist leading many community arts projects such as Art in Mind for Sandwell Creative Arts and STAA (Sandwell Third Age Arts), a charity providing access to the arts for elderly and people with dementia.
She has a fascination for the land and sea and she uses many mediums to capture its ever-changing moods and textures.
Her work is held in both public and private collections both at home and abroad.
One of her paintings, entitled 'Lochranza Springtime' was adopted by Arran Distillery for a label for their blended malt whisky 'Lochranza'.
Sandra has always loved the island and now has a holiday home in Corrie and is a regular visitor. She has a passion and excitement for nature, its beauty and overwhelming unpredictability. Arran, she feels, has much to offer for inspiration.
