Artist Statement

Once a special education teacher, now a local artist. Known for her large wall weavings and various ‘fish’ baskets made exclusively from locally gathered, natural materials. Also known as a wire sculpture artist, specializing in trees big and small. Trees mounted on local rocks, trees for the wall in picture frames, and trees inside large metal bands from wine barrels. Before covid restrictions, Sandi enjoyed returning to her teaching roots and offered individual and group courses for both basketry and wire sculpture. Now that our world is slowly becoming safer for social interaction, courses will resume again upon request.
