Just Off Centre
Studio & Art Gallery
Sandra Thomas (Artist):
"I am an established fine artist, essentially a painter, but have not limited myself, and practice in many other mediums. I have been fortunate to have had access to many other aspects of art, including printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, photography and stained glass. My first loves are drawing and oil painting. I feel that drawing is not stagnant and is extremely versatile in its choice and use of materials and drawing tools, which allows for all kinds of experimentation.
Born in the Eastern Cape of South Africa I feel that the eastern cape landscapes have a certain wildness. I don’t deliberately look for subjects, but rather journal my travels, mainly though Transkei and the Great Kei River regions, and now recently the North Eastern Cape and the Southern Drakensberg mountains, it is this untamed wilderness that I find challenging to tame. Each scene is either drawn on sight or photographed and worked on later in the day, and sometimes many years later in my studio. Although much of my work is landscape orientated, I am by no means solely a landscape artist, as can be seen by a visit to the gallery, also each work is unique and never repeated."
