Sandy learned about Wintringham through a friend who had been volunteering with Wintringham’s art program. She knew in that instant that the stars were aligning.
As a qualified, registered creative arts therapist Sandy has delivered art therapy programs across several Wintringham sites over the last few years and is currently coordinating the Keysborough Planned Activity Group (PAG).
She has always had a natural curiosity for the creative process, which has seen her employ her multifaceted practice in fashion, millinery, theatre, textiles, mix-medias, fine arts, sculpture, installations and live shows. She is known for her play with colour and texture and quirky way of combining unusual materials.
Sandy’s work has been awarded and can be found in private collections locally and across the globe.
The most important thing for Sandy when supporting Wintringham’s clients is that they achieve a sense of connection and feel empowered to express themselves in their own way.
“Art-making holds so many benefits in improving our clients’ well-being,” says Sandy.
She feels privileged to be part of so many of our clients’ ‘light-bulb’ moments.
