Sandra is a prolific and passionate painter with a strong international reputation. Her work is held in numerous museums and private collections. She was inspired to begin painting while watching her famous father in law David Mowaljarlai create his own Wandjina artwork.

Sandra produces beautifully balanced work, rich in stories and legends that show her strong connection to traditional cultural beliefs. Reflected again and again in Sandra's practice are the original stories and representations told by her ancestors to younger generations. She sees it to be vital that these stories are passed on, refreshed and remembered.
