"Sandy is a bit of an all rounder hi-jacking the figure as a launching pad for a wide range of work using a variety of materials and surfaces. Drawing, composition, energy and balance are meshed together with humorous narrative often derived from classical art and mythology.
Sandy works from two studios in Ryde (Isle of Wight) one of which is based at Monkton Arts"
