Full Biography

Sandra Robson

Born in Toronto, but I grew up on a farm and moved into the city at the age of six. We didn’t have crayons, pencils or paper. It didn’t stop me from drawing. I used sticks, sand, rocks and even snow. It didn’t matter if it rained or snowed – because tomorrow was the opportunity to start fresh.  After graduating from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Science, I realized that the creative field was where I needed to be. Graduated from the Sheridan College Illustrator program and have been creating ever since. Years of graphic design, creating illustrations and art direction brings me full circle to my painting roots. Tapping into intuition; I utilize experience and energy to me through my paintings inspired by my wonderful family, friends, laughter, and music – I love every day and the possibilities it brings.
