Sandra studied Embroidered and Woven Textiles at Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 1986, before enjoying a successful career in the interior design industry. This background has influenced her use of texture in her paintings and fuels a fascination with subject matter.
Sandra has developed a love of ‘scapes’, striving to capture atmosphere and evocation of the scene. She draws on her textile training, using texture and overlaying of mixed media to create the finished piece. Her style in which the layers of texture overlap, evoke emotional and visual memories for the viewer. She exhibits successful throughout Scotland, including at the Royal Glasgow Institute, Visual Art Scotland and Paisley Art Institute.
