Sandra Eterovic is an illustrator, artist and designer based in Melbourne, Australia.


After topping her Art History year at The University of Melbourne she abandoned postgraduate studies, choosing instead the practice of art over the theory of it. She studied illustration and ceramics at a technical college before beginning work as a textile/graphic designer for various Australian brands including Seed, Target, Kmart and Davenport.  Since 2010, Sandra has been working as a freelance illustrator.

Sandra is a multi media creative, but is most well known for her acrylic on wood paintings. She has illustrated for Strike Bowling, Archie Bros Electric Circus, ANZ Bank, Random House/Penguin, Text Publishing, Allen & Unwin, The University of Queensland Press, The Melbourne Writers Festival, Frankie, Gardening Australia, Kookie, and Sydney’s Child.  Her work has also featured on Australian TV, including The Block, Offspring, Winners and Losers and The Beautiful Lie.

Sandra has exhibited her artwork in both Australia and the United States, and has received various awards.  She is also proud to have painted exclusive portraits and other artwork for private clients.
