A Perfect Day
Sandra Marie Adams
Painting - Acrylic On Board
Inspired by a perfect Waiheke Island Day. A perfect day is based on my local beach Little Oneroa on Waiheke Island. Its a stunning little sheltered beach that gets very busy in the summer. It is surrounded by rocks on both sides so has a real cove like feel.

“From the day I picked up a brush I felt I had found my reason for being”.
Sandra Marie Adams lives on a small island off the coast of New Zealand.
Sandra’s work is often driven by a strong autobiographical element. Her paintings are mostly an outward manifestation of the world inside her head. Sandra loves to always be challenging herself as an artist. As a result her subject matter tends to varied. Sandra describes herself as a colourist and uses colour to evoke mood and emotion.
Waiheke Island, where she lives, features strongly in her paintings. Often the beautiful seascapes are used as the background for a story, comment or observation.
Sandra has always been passionate about the injustices in the world and the interplay of good and evil. Sandra often explores these themes in her art. Sandra has also endlessly questioned the validity of the conventional biblical stories. She enjoys portraying her own controversial version of the truth through her art.
