Amelia’s Magazine | Sandra Dieckmann

Born in Oldenburg , Germany 1983.

Sandra moved to London in 2002 in search of new adventures and further education.

She grew up in Germany in a tiny village surrounded by nature and believes that her versatile approach to creating images stems from her childhood.
“My head is full of stories and creatures and conversations. I can’t be any other way. Sometimes I think it is the way I was allowed to be free without fear so early on that ignited this dreaminess. I explored the woods, spent loads of time reading, drawing, and just making things. I think I just never stopped.”

After studying Fashion Design in 2006 she realised her passion for illustration and graphic design and after more than six years in art education eventually graduated first class honours from her degree in Graphic Information Design at the University of Westminster in London.

Sandra enjoys observing the world, creating creatures and anything else that involves creative play. Using a variety of media she is exited to work in different ways to achieve her creative vision.
Her skills have been applied to a wide array of projects, which can be seen reflected in her portfolio.
Sandra also published a children’s book in 2009 entitled ‘The Bumble Bear & The Grizzly Bee’.

In 2010 she devised two illustration projects, which are both currently open for submissions. Haus Stories and If I Was You.

Sandra currently lives and works in East London very content with her friends and her cat Little Crumb by her side!
