Hi my name is Sandra Hickey. I am an Irish artist. I have painted and drawn for as long as I can remember. Painting has a hold on me like no other, it possesses the ability to both calm and torment a soul in equal measures and I wouldn’t want to be without it! I perfected my practice at the Limerick School of Art and design where I studied Fine Art- Painting and I obtained my Masters at the National College of Art and Design, also specialising in painting. I had to extreme fortune of joining the Loving Vincent painting animation team and work in the beautiful Gdansk. To work alongside such talent interesting artists from all around the world was a true honour. My experience working on Loving Vincent was life changing, I got to meet and work with so many exceptional people, learn from different cultures and develop my skills while exploring Poland’s beautiful landscape. The subject matter I’m draw towards is figurative and portraits some quite abstract though since working on Loving Vincent and painting in the Van Gogh style my eye is developing a love for landscape too. I have always been a fan of Vincent Van Gogh so to get to be a part of this labour of love that is Loving Vincent is something incredible.
