Sandra Orme is one of the UK’s leading pastel artists and workshop tutor. She is an associate artist with Unison Pastels and winner of a number of awards and prizes: a national art competition, The Buxton Spa Prize 2017. The Landscape Prize at The Derbyshire Open 2009 and Best Visual Artist Award, Buxton Festival Fringe 2009, Sandra’s atmospheric pastel paintings of land, sea and sky are inspired by the affect the changing seasons have on the moorland landscapes that surround her studio.
Her vivid work not only reflects the intense hues and tones of wild open spaces and dramatic coastlines, but also evokes a strong sense of time and place. Workshops run at her stunning new studio and commissions welcome.
