Sandra Pond

Suffolk Artist & Illustrator

Suffolk Art Classes

Beginner - Advanced

It is often said that watercolour is unforgiving, that you can’t alter mistakes, change colours…. well, I would like to show you that to a large extent, these things are indeed possible.

Learning techniques are essential and by knowing how to do things properly you will make fewer mistakes. Hopefully, the skills and techniques I can teach you (both on-line or personally) will enable you to paint with more confidence, success, and most of all enjoyment.

Illustration 

Over 45 Years of Publications

I am widely known for my finely detailed and accurate botanical and wildlife illustrations. This fascination in flora and fauna comes from an early age, sitting in the garden surrounded by Frogs, Spiders, Ants, Bees, Flowers etc. My work has also included cookery, gardening, biology and architecture. I also create and exhibit my own paintings in local galleries. 

My work has appeared in publications both nationally and internationally.

Private Tuition

One On One Tutoring

If you have a passion for art or are thinking of taking it up there’s no better way than private lessons from Sandra Pond. Her studio 5 1/2 Tin Blue is located in the idyllic Suffolk countryside surrounded by the sounds of nature. Spend anywhere from a half-day to a regular weekly session improving your skills.
