Sandra Orme is one of the North West’s leading pastel artists. Her studio is in the heart of the Peak District in Buxton, Derbyshire. Her work explores the ever changing sky and landscape that surrounds her studio in the Peak District and beyond. She is renowned for her ability to capture dramatic skies and a sense of place. 

She is inspired by the grand landscape tradition from JMW Turner to Alexander Nasmyth and applies contemporary pastel and charcoal methods to develop epic representational works that convey the terrible beauty of wild open spaces.  ‘Nothing can be beautiful that is not true’ wrote John Ruskin.  Sandra seeks to recreate the beauty of dramatic skies and moorland vistas. A beauty that is based on her perception of the truth of these moments in time and place. ​


She has a degree in Fine Art and many years experience as an art teacher and tutor. 

Sandra has written a book on Painting Pastel Skies for Search Press- available through all bookshops and Amazon online.
