Sandy Scott

1943 -
Sculptor, Etcher
Origin: United States
Born: July 24, 1943, Dubuque, Iowa

Sandy Scott began her studies at the Kansas City Art Institute in 1961. She worked as an architectural delineator and with Calvin Motion Pictures as an animation background artist. Always intrigued by flight, she obtained her pilot's license in 1965. However, the airlines refused to hire her, claiming she was too short, so she began working as a flight attendant for Eastern Airlines. After an airline accident, Scott returned to art and opened a portrait studio in San Francisco. Dissatisfied with portraiture, she soon closed the studio and began drawing and etching wildlife. The Shoal Gallery in Austin, Texas, discovered Scott's etchings and gave her a one-woman show, which was an instant success. Within the year, she was represented by twelve galleries. Scott began sculpting after a 1981 trip to China, where she was influenced by many sculptors.
