Originally from Sweden, Sandra now lives in Daylesford, Australia where
she has a studio/gallery called Sister George.
She has been drawing greetings cards for the last decade, some which are printed in Diversions Most Obscure.
Extremely exciting news indeed! Esther! A true story is on the shortlist for the Ledger Awards 2019. Am going to Sydney for the awards night, Fri 26th of April at the State Library of NSW. Come along if you are free!
Amazon reader review of ”Esther! a true story”:
You’ll love Esther: larger than life but grounded in her own truth; buffeted by trauma but defying all expectations of defeat. Sandra Broman is a clever artist and storyteller, nailing Esther’s exuberant joie de vivre as well as the sheer strength and grit of her spirit. This is an epic yet very human tale about a life lived so fully that it sometimes bursts apart. Broman skilfully navigates through complex and sensitive material, using the graphic novel format to great effect. I zoomed through this book fully engaged, hardly realising how much I was learning about feminism, queer culture, Chilean socialism, American imperialism and redemptive immigration. Broman tackles Esther’s story with humour, warmth and great respect. Highly recommended.
