Sandra Thomas Fine Artist
external-file_edited.png

Sandra Thomas lives and works in the village of Bathurst in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. She has painted since the age of seven and studied under renowned artist Jack Lugg, who in turn trained with Walter Battiss, one of the leading artists of the twenty-first century. Sandra graduated B. Tech. Cum Laude in Fine Art in 2005. 

She draws much of her inspiration from the Albany Thickets, an ecoregion of dense spiny scrubland and low forest concentrated in the Eastern Cape. It is a wild, uninhabited place that offers her endless opportunities for exploration. "I like places where no one else goes. I try to portray the quietness there."

Sandra's work is drawn in fine detail, imbuing her artworks with an ethereal quality.

"There is a sense of tranquility and mystery in Sandra's drawings and paintings, inspired by the indigenous forests in and around Bathurst." Marion Whitehead - Country Life April 2020

I am in search of the untouched where mystery and memory
allow the story of the landscape to emerge.
