Sandy Sandy, Alcohol Ink Artist
Alcohol Ink Artist and Instructor
Named by my parents, Sandra Sandy, I have always been known as Sandy Sandy in everyday life. I was born in the mid-fifties and grew up in the ’60s and ’70s. Self-expression through art has taken many forms through the years. From my earliest memories, art has always been an important part of my life. Today, I’m living my childhood dream of residing in the country, surrounded by nature and creating every day. A lover of color, (especially turquoise), I feel something’s personally lacking when I’m not wearing it.
I do my painting in a bright, spacious studio built onto the house in 2001. Giving demos and classes at Sandarosa Studio and other locations from New York City to Florida, connects me to dozens of artists every year, but it just isn’t enough. With my online offerings, I hope to touch the hearts and connect with the minds of others traveling the Art Dream-Way. My aim is to fan the creative flames that lie within you! Since I went to art school BC (before computers), I never imagined being able to connect and share my passion with so many like-minded, creative spirits. I am so happy to be living in this day and age. Now I can share my love and knowledge of the principles, techniques, and spirit of art with the simple click of a button.
After painting mainly in watercolor for over 45 years, experimenting and playing with alcohol inks since 2013 has brought more fun into my life. The inks have turbocharged my imagination and sparked my creative soul. My wish is that learning, loving, and creating, will do the same for you! The launch of my first alcohol ink e-course in 2016, ushered in many exciting opportunities and adventures. My advice to all artists I teach is to lighten up, be your own best friend, enjoy the process, and don’t be afraid to make mistakes! That’s how we learn! Mistakes are your best friends because if you’re making them, you are experimenting, growing, learning, and doing something new.
