Alexandra (Sandie) Gardner was born in 1945 and brought up in Glasgow. She studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1963 to 1967 closely under the tutelage of the Head of School David Donaldson, who, as soon as she qualified, offered her an immediate teaching and lecturing post within the school. Alexandra, or Sandie as she prefers, remained as a lecturer at GSA for 21 years. Throughout her teaching career, Sandie painted for exhibitions principally in a number of prestigious galleries in London, Edinburgh and Glasgow, and had any number of solo shows that were widely acclaimed. She is now recognised as one of Scotland’s most accomplished female painters and is highly sought after by galleries and collectors alike. Her work is included within many important corporate, public and private collections – Glasgow Art Gallery and Museum; The Fine Art Society; Gothenburg Education Authority; The Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation, London; Royal College of Physicians, Edinburgh; Royal Bank of Scotland collection, to name but a few. Alexandra Gardner has work in private collections across the globe including USA, Canada, Holland, Singapore, Japan, Australia, Italy and Sweden.

Widely recognised as one of Scotland’s most accomplished painters, Alexandra (Sandie) Gardner’s paintings are highly sought after by galleries and collectors alike. Her work is included in many important corporate, private, and public collections, including Glasgow Art Gallery and Museum, The Fine Art Society, the Royal College of Physicians, and the Royal Bank.

Sandie’s paintings cover a remarkably diverse array of subjects, from still lifes and portrait studies to nudes and landscapes, as well as her iconic moody bars, diners, and restaurants. China Doll with Porcelain Hands depicts a striking red-haired woman. She gazes confidently with vivid red lips and nails, exuding an air of sophistication and mystery. One hand rests gracefully on her chest, emphasising her composed yet alluring demeanour. This juxtaposition of strength and fragility adds depth to the portrait, showcasing Sandie’s ability to capture both the outer confidence and inner subtleties of her subject.
