Sandon spent his early years in Goodooga, NSW on Nhunngall country before moving to Orange where he’s lived on Wiradjuri land for over 20 years. With two young daughters and hopes to pass on knowledge and Nhunggal stories to the next generation.

“My artwork is mainly acrylic on canvas and I hope to educate, continue to learn and challenge stereotypes through my work. I am slowly going through the traditional Nhunggabarra stories that we have and paint them. I use this knowledge to create contemporary Aboriginal art which is inspired by the land, our culture, communities and society.

I am very thankful to all those that have supported me on my journey as an artist and am so excited for what is to come. I love that art can resonate differently with each individual and that people are realising the importance of the knowledge held by the longest surviving culture on Earth.”
