About Sandra Bernaitis

I became a Teacher of APAT in 1999 which has led to exhibiting in most states of Australia and New Zealand. My style has led to being invited to teach seminars in Auckland, Whanganui, Western Australia, South Australia, Queensland and Victoria. In addition I have taught high school students, a scout group and lead lighting groups.

The challenge of trying different techniques, my love of pen work and airbrushing has provided opportunities to combine these elements to create interesting designs. It has and still is evolving in style only limited to the artist’s imagination. I always encourage originality once a technique is shown. Today in our world of ever growing technology I love this creative form of art and hopefully pass it on with the knowledge our art can endure years into the future.

Travelling overseas I have been able to tour Royal Doulton in England, Meissen in Germany, Royal Copenhagen in Denmark, Jeissa in Lithuania, and Ming in Singapore. Touring these establishments has provided an insight into the various styles and methods used in developing/creating porcelain along with the different influences each country and artists has had. Whilst in Venice and Murano I toured several glass manufacturers and decorators gathering ideas on using glass and porcelain together while concentrating on the concept of using porcelain paint to achieve results.

I endeavour to make my classes fun and enjoyable. If a student gets into difficulty, I will be on hand to fix any problems. You will end up with something unique and different to take home.
