Art in the Mansion – Sandra Phillips
July 24 - August 6
“I was born and brought up in Pendine, educated at Whitland Grammar School and studied in Liverpool and the University of Wales, Aberystwyth.
An art lover since childhood, I began painting in earnest following early retirement from teaching.
What started as an interest in watercolour has developed into a love of all media particularly oil painting. Here I can express my feelings for the landscapes and seascapes. I so enjoy painting using impasto work in an impressionistic style.
I am heavily influenced by the sea, coast and rugged mountains. These make up the bulk of my work. I enjoy working on-site also taking photographs and making sketches of the scenes which interest me. I am particularly drawn to light, mood and atmosphere which draws an emotional response from myself and viewers of my work.
I am always looking for new areas to paint and trying different approaches to my work. I love experimenting with mixed media and the feel the need to develop my work further.
When time permits I demonstrate or do workshops for art groups which I also enjoy. ”
