About the Artist

Sandra Leveson is one of Australia's most distinctive contemporary woman artists, who has pursued her career for more than thirty years. She was born in Melbourne in 1944, studied at Caulfield Institute of Technology and the National Art School, Melbourne 1959 - 63 and taught print making at Brighton Technical College in 1965.

As Senior Lecturer at Prahran College of Advanced Education, 1972 - 82, Sandra took several 12 month periods of study leave between 1974 and 1980 in the United Kingdom, Europe and New York. Sandra now works full time as a painter and printmaker in Sydney.

In the 1960's she was influenced by geometric Op - Art and in the '70's was inspired in part by American Abstract Expressionism. Latterly her work has developed into an individual style that pays heed to both the European and Australian landscapes and marks her as a consummate colourist.

Sandra won the Corio Painting Prize at Geelong Art Gallery, 1971, the Queensland Art Gallery Trustees Award, 1972, the Alice Prize 1972, and the Tasmanian Trustees Award 1972. She has received commissions to provide paintings for the Bicentennial Darling Harbour Project in 1988 and by the Park Hyatt Hotel in Sydney 1990.

She has had several major print commissions and is represented in the collections of the Australian National Gallery and the State Galleries of New South Wales, South Australia, Queensland, Tasmania and the Northern Territory.

She has exhibited regularly in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth since 1968, and in the USA since 1979. Her work is represented in corporate, institutional and private collections in the USA, Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany and Asia including the collections of American Airlines, Texas American Bank, Robert Holmes a Court, BHP, and Comalco.
