Sandra Guy is an Australian artist who was born in Pittsburgh. Sandra grew up traveling with her Australian parents and from an early age she was immersed in art. Her interest grew from her travels, her frequent trips to art galleries, and the many art books that decorated their home. After graduating from college with a Bachelor of Art, Sandra moved to the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales where she became intently interested in landscapes. Later whist studying for her Masters qualification, Sandra traveled to the Australian desert and was inspired by color and the sublime, a motif that would become the basis of many of her future works.
Sandra further investigated the sublime while attending a study tour of Paris, London and Amsterdam and after moving to the Northern Rivers where she currently resides, she began adding road signs, houses and fences to the landscape oil paintings she was most known for. Sandra aims to capture the intense color and light of her experiences of the landscape expressed in big, sweeping, dramatic skies. While her work has received many accolades all over the world, Sandra paints first for her viewers. She aims to paint timeless landscapes that create a sense of intrigue and drama, and a space for the viewer to enter the painting, engaging the viewer’s imagination.
