The Artist – Sandy Gaskett

Setting up for Solo Exhibition at Violet Pilot

Art takes me to my happy place.  There’s nothing else like it that can give me that zing, or get me out my head than picking up a pencil or paint brush and just letting something happen.

Born in the 60s the youngest of 6 children, it seems it has always been my job to make my family and friends laugh.  This naturally spills over into my artworks, where I combine the quirky, the strange, and sometimes the odd. Hence the tongue in cheek name of “Gasbombgirl”.

I’m always hopeful my art connects with someone out there, if only for a brief moment.

I have another art website of works at www.violetanddarby.com.au – please take the time to visit. xx
