Judy Sandel
I discovered I was an artist at age 36. I never knew before what was missing from my life, I was very restless and dissatisfied with a feeling something was missing. I started studing art in night courses at University of Akron in Ohio. Ohio is my native state. While I as at the University I meet my teacher, Joyce Kitt-Edwards. She is well known in the West. I studied privately with her for four years learning the art of watercolor. I then continued studies at Cuyahoga Valley Art School.  I entered various shows there and won an award my first year of showing my work to the public.  Thru the years I have sold numerous painting that are in England, Canada, Mexico, and the United States.

I spent two years in Mexico and there I learned alittle about clay sculpture making reproductions of pre-columbian art. It was a novel experience that taught me many things and I throughly enjoyed it. I also expanded into oil painting. The culture, color, and light had to be painted in oil.

Upon my return to the states, I moved to Florida, I couldn't handle the weather in the North anymore. I am now settled in Steinhatchee, in the woods, river, and the Gulf of Mexico enjoying Nature's Wonderland and following my great love of painting, and a few new avenues, such as, underwater scenes on gourds, and colored pencil.
