ABOUT SANDRA WHYTE
Sandra is a fine artist from Whangarei who creates realistic paintings in oils, often in the form of landscape and wildlife that reflect her love of our wilderness.
Her Native, Endemic and Common bird paintings are loved by both locals and tourists alike. Sandra loves to explore the country, tramping to remote areas, always with a camera in hand ready to capture that special moment and transfer it to canvas.
"The wilderness in New Zealand offers a sense of truth that seems to evade us in everyday life. What you see is what you get. The water reflects the calm installed by the weight of the mist in the air. I often wonder what's around the corner, what's under the water and what's deep in the forest. The wilderness never lies. It merely awaits your exploration."
Sandra's latest (ad)venuture is plein air painting. She and her Partner have just embarked on a tour of New Zealand in their amazing trailer that fits them, their Harley Davidson, and Sandra's mini studio all in one. Sandra will be using the NZ landscape to inspire new works, painting live in many wonderful locations. We are excited to see the results of such a serious endeavour!
We also look forward to bringing Sandra's commissioned works to our clients. Caringly facilitated by Quay Art Gallery.
