Drawing cartoons and making short animations is how it began, and now Sandra Salter (aka @cecilysalt) channels her lively, flowing marks into screenprints, comic panels and sometimes sewn things.
Graduate of the Royal College of Art 1996, RSA Design Award winner and animation film Bafta nominee - she resides in a printshop with husband Jim in glorious Devon, where she grew up. Her hopes are to spend a bit more time working on single images, rather than the many 1000s an animation requires - but still harnessing movement, occasional wit and flowing narrative, albeit into still images (and frequently featuring food!).

lately Sandra has been working on a graphic memoir for Olympic hurdler/former Saatchi ad man Michael Parker weaving narrative threads in a highly readable and personable way. The work in progress for Life Hurdling has been longlisted for Myriad Editions First Graphic Novel Competition.
