Sandra was born in Toronto. She grew up in the country on a rabbit farm and the lack of crayons, pencils or paper didn’t suppress a natural tendency to draw. She used sticks, rocks, sand and even snow to create. It didn’t matter if it washed away – because
tomorrow was the opportunity to start fresh.
Sandra earned a University of Toronto science degree; and quickly understood that her true passion was in the arts. The Sheridan College Illustration program provided a foundation towards an established career as a graphic designer, an illustrator and art
director. This experience provided a deep understanding of both the elements and principles of design. Her paintings have won awards, placements in a variety of juried exhibits and can found displayed in homes across Canada, the US and Europe.
“Creating is an extension of my core and the canvas is my playground. Nature captures my attention and loads my palette with the desire to paint. Painting is an expressive indulgence providing the opportunity to explore an intimate conversation with my inner
voice. Each brushstroke celebrates expressive movement bringing a touch of nature indoors.”
