Her work has been commissioned throughout the UK, and exhibited, performed and screened internationally. Many of her works explore issues of life, death and fertility.

Sands supports research to find answers as to why babies die and drives improvements in maternity and neonatal care. SANDS provides support to bereaved parents through their national helpline, support groups, an online community and beautiful memory boxes. SANDS trains health care professionals to help them support bereaved parents in the most sensitive and helpful ways.
