Born circa 1944, near Ernabella in South Australia William Sandy has lived in Areyonga and Haasts Bluff in Papunya, with his family. At Papunya he married Violet Nakamarra, sister of Michael NELSON Jagamarra. They have four children, a boy and three girls, one adopted. William Sandy's wife, Violet Nakamarra, has also painted occasionally since the early '80's. From the time of his arrival in Papunya settlement, William worked for the Papunya Council. William Sandy is also a knowledgeable traditional medicine man.  From the late '80's, William Sandy and his wife have been health workers with the Papunya Medical Service.

William Sandy paints Dingo, Emu, Woman, Green Bean and other Dreaming stories for his country. Kunapi, far to the south of Papunya out towards Docker River, is his country from his grandmother and mothers side. William Sandy grew up walking around these places - and further north around Hermannsburg, Areyonga and Haasts Bluff. Eventually the family settled at Ernabella, where William attended the mission school. From here William Sandy came to Papunya in 1973.
