Artist Bio
Castro Vally, CA - Sculptor and printmaker (etchings), Sandy Scott, feels very strongly for and about her subjects. A widely admired etcher of sporting scenes in the 1970s, Scott turned to sculpting in the early 1980s, focusing primarily on birds. Nearly two decades later, she has matured technically and artistically, moving adeptly between subjects wild and domestic, including keen-eyed eagles, sinuous trout, elegant dogs, robust pigs, powerful horses, exotic macaws and arrogant roosters.

The book, "Spirit of the Wild Things", published on the occasion of the Gilcrease Museum Rendezvous 1998, documents Scott’s career and artistic development. Sandy’s unique background has enabled her to capture the spirit of her subjects with a heartfelt vitality and technical skill. “With a father who is an outdoorsman, my love of the outdoors was cultivated at an early age,” explains Sandy. “I’ve always loved to fish and I’ve backpacked and camped in some of this country’s most beautiful places.”

Trained at the Kansas City Art Institute, Sandy Scott worked as an animation background artist for the motion picture industry before turning her attention to etching and printmaking in the 1970's and to sculpture in the 1980's. She has been a licensed pilot for over 25 years and feels her knowledge of aerodynamics has been helpful in achieving the illusion of movement in her bird sculpture. She maintains a studio in Wyoming, and one on an island on Lake of the Woods in Ontario, Canada.
