Sandra Pond LsiAD, EAC


I have worked as a professional artist since graduating from Norwich School of Art and Design where I received the annual award for outstanding achievement.

I am widely known for my finely detailed and accurate botanical and wildlife illustrations for publishers worldwide. I have also illustrated children's books and wide-ranging subjects such as gardening, cookery, architecture, DIY, biology, fantasy and sport.

When I am not illustrating books or magazines, I like to teach and have many regular students at my classes and workshops in Suffolk.

'Nature Walk'

Watercolour on Paper

Commission for Coddenham Parish Council


Based on the wonderful Suffolk coast, I work from my home studio.  I also have an extensive library where I often spend many hours researching subjects, sometimes using books I have myself illustrated as reference material.

In addition to my detailed and accurate illustration, I work in both watercolour and acrylic on a larger scale and some of my work includes a large slice of imagination and use of scenes I find interesting and inspiring.

I also enjoy teaching and undertake evening and afternoon watercolour classes for beginners and intermediate painters, and day workshops throughout Suffolk.  I also try to help stimulate the next generation of budding artists at local schools when time allows the staff to add a little creativity!  Please e-mail me if you would like me to come to your school.

I exhibit several times a year and if you would like details of these exhibitions, workshops and other news, please e-mail me.

You will find a list of some of the publishers and organisations I work for here and an example of my works throughout this website but there are some original paintings here, some examples of commissions here and illustrations for publishers here.
