Sandra Dieckmann | artist, illustrator & maker
"The best folktales have a dark edge. Conversely, the best folk art pops with colour - perhaps as a visual way of whistling in the dark, perhaps a celebration of the richness of northern Europe's storytelling tradition. Sandra Dieckmann's nature inspired illustration has got that elusive, comfortable yet disquieting quality in spades."(Digital Artist Magazine)
Sandra enjoys observing the world, creating creatures and anything else that involves creative play. Her work mainly revolves around nature and wildlife, drifting, dreams and the things that touch her personally. A lot of her work is self iniated and sold online and through an extensive list of worldwide stockists. Sandra's work has also been applied to a wide array of international commissions and projects, working with client like Sky, Lily Cole, WWF, Andersen Press and Al Jazeera on book illustrations, editorial, apparel and much more. In 2011 Sandra was chosen by Oscar winning animator and illustrator Shaun Tan as the Emerging Talent in Illustration for her image ‘Fox Tree’. In 2013 Etsy flew her to Australia and New Zealand to speak at Semi Permanent Conferences about her life and work. Right now she resides and works as an illustrator and artist in East London from her studio 'Mama Wolf'.
