Traces of the past revealed in objects and landscapes are intrinsic to Sandra Storey’s artwork. The mythological presence of moors and sea pervades her images which draw on a childhood in and life-long attachment to the natural world surrounding Whitby: its villages, walks and moorland.
A practicing Art Psychotherapist since 1985, Sandra’s experience and understanding of the creative process and attachment to people, places and objects flavour and inform her work.
Using printmaking, drawing and painting she finds parallel processes in these mediums which highlight her ideas. Experimentation with carborundum, drypoint and monotype are inspiring new work.
As Artist in Residence at Whitby Museum in 2015 she was surrounded by artefacts which resonated with the history of local communities and her own childhood. The residence at the museum inspired work which explores concepts of archiving, memory and the significance of the artefact or personal object.
