Sandy Tweed spent a decade teaching high school science followed by another as a building contractor in Astoria, OR. A new decade called for a new career. Having dabbled in watercolors in the past she picked up her brushes and began painting again only to find herself uninspired. Looking to recapture the passion in her art she tried acrylic paints and found a bold and dynamic medium that suited her perfectly. The subjects of Sandy’s paintings are no surprise given her childhood fascination for any and all critters. This was followed by a degree in Zoology at the University of Washington.
Also ready for a change of scenery Sandy began exploring the Northwest looking for the next place to call home. After trying on several communities Sandy has chosen to settle permanently in Port Townsend.
