Long time Island resident, Sandy's artwork is part of many homes on Stradbroke Island. Sandy lives in Brisbane for now, but has strong ties to the the Island and the community

"The art I make has taken on many forms over the past 30 years, including sculptural ceramics and painting. However, it has never deviated from my desire to express strong statements that have been pared back so as to reveal themselves simply.

I never plan too much - I love to watch it develop, change and surprise me."
