During the last 30 years Edwina Sandys has created art of international acclaim that includes sculpture, paintings, collage and works on paper. Her work has reached a wide audience far beyond the realm of the private collector. Early in her career, for the 1979 United Nations’ Year of the Child, she created three monumental sculptures, which are now installed at UN centers in New York, Geneva and Vienna.
Today her works are mainly large-scale metal sculptures which include her iconic Eve’s Apple and her Sunflower Woman, commissioned by Henry Buhl for his celebrated Sunflower Collection. Not only was her father the British Cabinet Minister, Duncan Sandys, but her grandfather was Winston Churchill. Through her richly varied life experience, Edwina is uniquely situated to create work related to the global issues of our time.
