Sandra Dieckmann -“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 Dieckmann was born in a tiny Moo-town full of cows, fields and trees in Germany. In a tree house to be precise. Her mother was dangling by one arm when she gave birth and Sandra flopped out and landed on the back of a hawk who brought her home to his nest. There she learned to fly. That way she made her way to Great Britain in 2002 where she made friends with some pens and a magic black cat called Little Crumb.She now works from her studio in East London as a Freelance illustrator and artist.
Drawing & playing with colours and building herself a magical nest filled with textures, patterns and furry faces. Her work mainly evolves around nature, wildlife, dreams, longing and observations and is inspired by all that touches her personally. Time and space. Nature and music. Feelings, friends, conversations and learning …Sandra’s skills have been applied to a wide array of international commissions and projects - working with clients like Random House Publishing, Atomic Skis and Utne Reader. In 2011 Sandra was chosen by Oscar Winner Shaun Tan as the Upcoming Talent in Illustration in the UK for her image ‘Fox Tree’”
