After a little pleading, I was able to finally convince Sandy Evans to be the subject of this issue of “In the Artist’s Studio”. She’s rather shy about her art.
Like so many of the artists I’ve visited with over the years, Sandy is one of those people who was busy earning a living by way of a rewarding teaching career and filling that creative yen by doing things other than painting. Things like creating costumes for stage productions, or making sure her classroom bulletin boards were creative as well as informative.
Since delving into the world of watercolour by taking a class from her first mentor/teacher Valerie McLenahan, she’s been hooked. Valerie introduced her to techniques that allowed her to see that she really could create art. Follow that with classes from the University of YouTube and she hasn’t looked back.
Sandy also credits Annie Froese and the “lovely ladies” who attend Annie’s journal sessions for inspiring her to develop further as an artist.
