Fiber Artist, Sandra Clarke was born in Griffintown, a vibrant Montreal West-end neighbourhood, to a robust Celtic family. Natural story-tellers, poets and artists woven together with hard working ethics influenced Sandra's early artistic studies of traditional arts and hand crafts. Further education in Montreal, New York, Winnipeg, Vancouver and Toronto in visual arts, theatre, writing and business developed Sandra into a successful fiber artist and art teacher. Sandra has been teaching art since 1998 and earned an Award of Distinction from the Peel District Board of Education. Sandra gives traditional arts a contemporary life while still retaining practicality. Sandra divides her time between her home in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada and her off-grid cabin-in-the-woods in Highlands East, Ontario.
