Sandy began her painting journey after moving to the Finger Lakes. Oil and pastel are the mediums she uses to create her paintings. She loves to paint anything in nature. Landscapes, sunsets, and animals are her favorite subjects. Sandy also enjoys painting still life. She’s been inspired to paint sights across the U.S., Europe and of course, the Finger Lakes. When she paints, Sandy travels to quiet places, wonderful memories, and to the joy of creating. Sandy learned oil and pastel painting by taking classes from accomplished artists and teachers such as Dick Kane, Barbara Doyle, Patricia Tribastone, Pat Rini Rohrer, Lyn Asselta, and Elizabeth Apgar-Smith.
