"I enjoy the spontaneity of watercolours. As well as painting landscapes, I often work with watercolours in the Intuitive style. Some of my work is abstract. In recent years I have returned to wood block printing and I am starting to do more work in this field. My inspiration always comes from nature." - Sandra Cole Burke
