Psychic uses Da Vinci code to reach spirits
A MOTHER bound in a spiral of depression found no way to overcome her emotions until she met a psychic artist who claims to channel the spirit of Leonardo Da Vinci.
Sandy Ingham, 66, who lives in Perranwell Station, claims the spirit of Da Vinci acts through her hands to draw pictures of people who have died.
With a stick of charcoal in each hand, Sandy, who said she has never had any artistic training, explained how the spirit helps her draw detailed pictures of her clients' deceased family members. Sandy is also a medium and can talk to the spirits.
For Suzanne Standen, 44, talking to Sandy was the only way she could get over her postnatal depression and the death of her father.

Mrs Standen said: "After the birth of my son, Daniel, I couldn't shake the depression. Then, just weeks after he was born, my father Brian died aged 69. It sent me into a spiral of depression.
"I tried speaking with doctors but nothing worked."
When Suzanne, a former investment banker, walked into her first session with Sandy, there was a piece of paper on the table ready.
After a brief chat, Sandy turned it over to reveal a drawing of Suzanne's father. It was likened to a photograph taken years ago that Suzanne said there is no way Sandy could have seen.
"I was blown away," said Suzanne, "and after talking with Sandy I felt my depression lift."
Talking to the West Birton, Sandy said she only realised six years ago that she had the gift of speaking with "the artist" and those who have died.
"I would go into a trance-like state and start drawing random things on bits of paper," she said.
Sandy also operates a tele-psychic service. Clients can call her and Sandy will enter her trance and draw a picture and post it to them.
"Sometimes people do not recognise the drawing but then they'll show it to their mother or relative and they will say, 'yes that's a picture of so and so from 40 years ago'. They'll pull out an old picture and it's a spitting image of the one I have drawn.
"I don't know what I am drawing. I close my eyes, put my head down and after five minutes, there it is."
Sandy now plans to tour Cornwall.
Suzanne said: "It's a type of therapy. There are sceptics. But any form of counselling that helps with grief must be good."
