Sandra has lived and worked in Rye for more than 30 years, and has recently rekindled her love of painting after a career in teaching. She works in an open, free-flowing impressionistic style using both watercolours and acrylic to capture a mood or a moment. She also creates pieces using drift wood, felt and delicate handmade paper, often incorporating handmade glass items with a creative colleague Gilly Harding. Sandra’s inspiration comes from the wild side of nature- the sea and landscapes- and her love of local fishing boats. She aims to develop her skills using new mediums and styles.
