Sandra is a local artist, best known for her New Zealand bird and tree paintings, owls, Anthropomorphic Steampunk Characters and the occasional abstract.
She is an artist member and friend of The New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts, Aratoi Wairarapa Museum of Art and History and the popular local art club Wai Art. Sandra is also the founder of Kotare Art Studio + Gallery and works onsite most days of the week. And while she adores owls (Ruru in particular), Kotare is the bird she sees most often and her studio is named after it.
The gallery part grew from the realization that she didn't have enough of her own works to go up on the walls and the space is now shared with works by many local & regional artists, many of whom are friends she has known over the years.
