Sandra Passerman lives in the small rural town of Wingello in the Southern Highlands of N.S.W.
She studied pottery at the National School of Ceramic art in Buenos Aires, Argentina before emigrating to Australia in 1987.
Sandra began teaching at Bondi Pavilion Community Centre in 1989 and has since also worked with the Hazlehurst Regional Gallery and Art Centre, teaching ceramics and visual arts to children of school age, working for school holidays programmes, school excursions programmes and after school art classes.
In 2016 she moved to the Southern Highlands and after building a new studio, she has immersed herself fully into her personal journey as well as running one day workshops teaching the art of the “cuerda seca” technique.
Sandra also participates in occasional local “makers markets” at Bundanoon and the Winterfest festival.
Her work is based on the nature that surrounds her everyday, whether be colourful birds or autumn leaves, earth forms or tree roots and branches. That is why her work is constantly changing.
