Sandi Wells (1958) -- Fine Art
Artist Sandi Wells
Born in Zimbabwe in 1958, Sandi started her career as an Art High School teacher but was soon lured away into the world of business. She owned and operated a very successful artist supplies business for 16 years giving her valuable in-depth knowledge on ‘the science behind the art’ and the importance of using quality materials.
After selling her business in 2004, she decided to explore opportunities in the corporate world. Although she enjoyed great successes, she found that the smell of oils and canvas was more appealing.
“I feel a deep connection to the African landscape and to its people. These are the base of my art.
I have reached a point in my painting where I feel comfortable with my post impressionistic style using vivid colours, thick application of paint and distinctive brush and pallet knife strokes. My paintings are each a story and most often, are created from memory. The landscapes become a backdrop for human interaction pushing the composition aim to reflect on everyday life in Africa.
Painting is an obsession for me and I only paint what I love. I don’t see the point otherwise.”
