Sandra Brant Artist and Creative

I am a self taught artist living and working in Glastonbury, Somerset. Working mainly in acrylic or watercolour on anything that will stay still long enough to paint on!

There is a quote by Pre-Raphaelite artist Rossetti which constantly inspires me: “People who dream in broad daylight learn about things which are never revealed to those who only dream at night”.

I try, in my work, to capture the daydream, a place of transition between the real and the imaginary-a meeting place where opposites merge. Day and night, dark and light, fluidity and structure. A place where disembodied parts of the dream come together alongside fleeting glimpses of places remembered, combined with myth, legend, geometry and spirituality.

I am inspired by our natural world, the elements, colours, smells, sounds and feeling s that our sub conscious minds collect throughout life. The meeting places where elements meet, dance and entwine with each other, where land meets sea or mountains skim the sky, places of power and magic. A time out of time, portals to unseen dimensions, where the day dream comes alive. This is a place that lets your mind wander into magical spheres, where the imagination has free reign, where there are no cares or worries and certainly no rules!

I also do narrow boat art (roses and castles), painted furniture, decorated skulls, wall hangings, sculptural forms made from bones, feathers and driftwood and wall murals.

For me painting and creating art is an absolute joy and if there was nothing else in this life, then this is enough.

Cards and prints are available of most of my work at Abbey Muse Art Gallery in Glastonbury. I am happy to undertake commissions, including wall murals and for any further information please contact me.
