Sandra McComb

President and Business Manager

Dr Sandra McComb has had considerable experience in managing arts related businesses as CEO of several international publishing companies. Translating ideas into attractive and marketable publications accessible to a wide audience has been at the core of her working life.

She is keen to bring that experience to the Lorne Sculpture Biennale 2020. Sandra holds a doctorate in Australian Art History and Anthropology. She lives in Lorne and is currently a Visiting Fellow at the Australian National University.

Graeme Wilkie OAM

Vice President / Artistic Director

Graeme Wilkie trained in studios around the world, and has over 40 years of professional experience. His passion for art has evolved into a multi-disciplined practice from oil painting, sculptural works to large-scale ceramics. His ongoing pursuit of excellence and his love of aesthetics has led to the establishment of Qdos Arts, Lorne’s premier fine art gallery and sculpture park, offering scope to bring a diversity of cultural events to the region.

350 exhibitions solo and group shows have been mounted at Qdos over the past 30 years. Numerous acclaimed artists, musicians and performers have performed there. Wilkie was a member of the seminal team that established the Lorne Sculpture Biennale.
