It was at this time she feel in love with the color and light found living by the water in Sydney, she made Australia her home. She has taught art and design since her arrival throughout the north of Sydney. For the past few years Sandi has focussed on her own creativity and is an abstract expressionist painter.

The influences of other artists on my work have been many from Fred Williams, Brett Whitley to John Olsen and Freda Kolas. But more than other people is the impact living in Sydney has brought into my life. Being in the heart of a major city situated on the Harbour with icons such as the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge and the Sydney to Hobart Race have influenced me even more. The light and color of Australia draw me back here every time I go back to my childhood home.
