About the Artist
Sandra Moffat studied Embroidered and Woven Textiles at Glasgow School of Art , graduating in 1986 to develop a successful career with leading Interior Design companies Osborne and Little and Colefax and Fowler.
In 2007 Sandra returned to her love of painting and began exhibiting her work successfully throughout Scotland, including at the Royal Glasgow Institute, Visual Art Scotland and Paisley Art Institute. She has work in private collections in the UK, Spain, Canada, USA and Germany.
Sandra’s background in textiles has a strong influence on her work and she likes to work in an organic way by layering mixed media to prepare her board before making the first marks. Only when the layering process is complete does she decide on the composition of the piece, using the textures to suggest how the piece should evolve.
Sandra strives to capture atmosphere in her work where layers of texture and meaning are overlapped and evoke emotional and visual memories for the viewer.
Her latest work includes new Cityscapes and new reflective water pieces with light being the integral theme.
