The inspiration for Sandra’s work is from landscape and detail in nature - the colour, texture and marks that are natural or man-made. Themes in her work have been varied from global warming in the Arctic to the recent flooding on the Somerset Levels.
Originally a graphic designer and illustrator, she begins with sketches, photographs, and collage compositions that often include monoprints or collagraphs. Surfaces are painted or images are heat transferred onto cloth before stitch is added.
Sandra is an Associate of the Ontario College of Art and a graduate of the Diploma in Stitched Textiles from East Berkshire College. She has written books on art, design and composition for creative textiles, and teaches and exhibits internationally.
