Acrylic Painting Gallery
Sandy's work is greatly influenced by twenty years of watercolor painting. Wishing to move
beyond some of the limitations of watercolor she changed to acrylics. Her background can clearly
be seen in the use of primarily transparent pigments. She uses multiple layers of these to achieve
works ranging from light and ethereal to bold and intense. Her subjects focus on nature with a
bit of whimsy thrown in on occasion.
A native of the Pacific Northwest, Sandy lived the past 20 years in the picturesque community
of Astoria, OR. She has a degree in Zoology as well as a Masters in Teaching. Nearly a decade
spent as a science teacher was followed by a decade as a remodeling contractor. Ready for another
big change, she is currently exploring various northwest communities while spending a year
painting full time.
