Sculptor and printmaker (etchings), Sandy Scott, is passionate 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 between wild and domestic subjects.
Today Scott is recognized as one of the country’s premier animal sculptors. Her book, "Spirit of the Wild Things" documents Scott’s career and artistic development. Trained at the Kansas City Art Institute, Sandy worked as an animation background artist in the motion picture industry before turning her attention to etching and printmaking in the 1970s and to sculpture in the 1980s.
Her list of awards and prizes for sculpture and etching includes: The National Academy of Design in New York, Allied Artists in New York, New York Pen and Brush, American Artist's Professional League, Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, Gold Medal for Sculpture, and National Academy of Western Art.
