Sandie Schroder will not be participating in the Open Studio event in 2016
Sandie has a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree majoring in Painting and Sculpture from Curtin University.
After finishing her degree she travelled extensively then resided in Sydney where she continued to work as an artist exhibiting in many group shows, exhibitions and competitions.
She has worked in private and group studios and had several agents representing her, which meant her works have been sold to the corporate market, public and privately. She has also taken many commissioned works and her work is hung in public and private collections and galleries nationally. For the past 9 years Sandie has been residing in the hills of Perth were she continues to paint and exhibit regularly.
Her current series of artworks are produced on archival paper, and have been created by burning the paper. She has used a range of tools and different techniques to produce a variety of effects.
Burning the cotton paper highlights the ever present danger of bushfires in our area. Some images also include watercolour so both the fire and water elements complement each other.
She has had many close calls when creating these pieces, with them literally going up in smoke as the burning got out of control! Reinforcing the ever present threat of living here in our volatile bushland, it has given her a greater appreciation of the beautiful yet unforgiving environment in which we live.
