'...Necessity is the mother of invention' guided Sandi during her teens and beyond when luxuries weren't in her budget. She prized creating her version of acceptable substitutes.
As part of her do-it-yourself philosophy, Sandi became an accomplished seamstress, fabricating her wardrobe and home decor after she married. Mesmerized by PBS TV art demo shows, Sandi started painting her hand-fashioned garments. Near her 40th birthday, the couple purchased new furniture. Wall art was not in their budget. Recalling the PBS art shows and her fabric painting, Sandi passionately plunged into oil painting, learning by trial and error.
Sandi's self-guided art experiments blossomed with four years of instruction from a talented community college art instructor, Bonnie Hill, of Roseburg, OR. When Mrs. Hill left that position, she persuaded Sandi to instruct the class. Sandi instructed Umpqua College Community Ed.art from 1997 to 2013. Later Sandi switched from oils to acrylics because of their increased versatility and textures. Bonnie is her mentor and close friend.
