Sandra McGarr is an artist based in Horsforth. She is largely self taught and has also attended a variety of courses including painting at Leicester University and life drawing and painting at Leeds Art University.
She enjoys meeting new people and sharing with them her interest and joy of art. Recent influences include: Goyas etchings and Rembrandt’s etchings on a religious theme, prints of which are held at Leeds Art Gallery.
Her inspiration comes from the colours of nature and the solid form of manmade structures. The eclectic mix of artwork is helped by her ability to create a strong drawing. The vibrant colours of flowers are reflected in her wildflower and garden flower designs in watercolour.
