Illustration, Artwork and Paintings

 

 

Sandy paints in all mediums but favours acrylics and pen and ink. She spent three years training as a graphic designer and has painted all her life. Since moving to Chew Stoke she has continued to develop her painting skills under the expert eye of artist Barry Paine.  

Her favourite subjects are wildlife and nature - birds, animals, lots of water, scenery and still life.

She has also organised the Chew Valley Arts Trail since 2003 and designed and produced the popular brochure.

As a member and a former Press Officer of the Wildlife Art Society, Sandy won a Bronze Award at a regional exhibition held at Paignton Zoo and Haddon Galleries with "Two's company, three's a crowd" featuring three Macaws.

Corporate Branding 

The Druid's Arms in Stanton Drew, just around the corner from the third largest complex of standing stones in England,

is a cosy country pub, which had undergone a refurbishment and wanted a new logo to help its re-launch.

 Sandy used a modern font combined with an outline of The Cove, the historic stones 

which stand in the pub garden, to produce a simple but striking brand. 

This led to a further commission to create a new pub sign featuring the stones. 

One of the sides shows the sun and the other the moon. 

The sign also features a tiny mouse, which one of the regulars requested, 

plus an Arwen, the mystical Druidic symbol.

Wall Art

When the Lazy Lobster fish restaurant and fishmonger in Chew Magna wanted a striking, hand painted piece of fish based art work they turned to Sandy to paint their brilliant oak wall to give the bistro its distinctive atmosphere. 

The owners, Don and Donna Kelly were delighted: "Having known Sandy as a local friend and knowing of her art work, we asked her if she would do a sea food mural on an oak wall, though we thought it might have been out of her comfort zone.

Sandy agreed to do the work and we left it to her. To this day, all our customers are in awe of the mural on the oak wall and it looks as good now as it did when it was painted two years ago.

Thank you so much Sandy. How about doing Lazy Lobster 2 for

us ?"
