A native of the Pacific Northwest, Sandy spent a decade teaching high school science followed
by another as a building contractor in Astoria, OR. A new decade called for a new career.
Having dabbled in watercolors in the past she picked up her brushes and began painting again
only to find herself uninspired. Looking to recapture the passion in her art she tried acrylic
paints and found a bold and dynamic medium that suited her perfectly. However, her
background of watercolors can still clearly be seen in her use of primarily transparent pigments.
She uses multiple layers of these to achieve works ranging from light and ethereal to bold and
Sandy's subjects focus on nature with a bit of whimsy thrown in on occasion. This is no
surprise given her childhood fascination for any and all critters followed by a degree in Zoology
at the University of Washington.
Also ready for a change of scenery Sandy began exploring the Northwest looking for the next
place to call home. After trying on several communities she has chosen to settle permanently in
Port Townsend, WA.
