Sandy Reese
watercolors, oils

Sandy is a native Texan who has lived in most of the areas of her home state. Consequently, she has an appreciation for the different views of the landscape and residents. She has been interested in drawing ever since she could hold a pencil, but not until she was grown did she attempt using paints. A gift of a set of oil paints from her husband started her on the way to a lifelong love of painting.
She was a self-taught oil painter until she took watercolor lessons from a well-known Dallas artist, Lynn McLain, and she was “hooked”. Since that time she has been fortunate to attend workshops with nationally known artists including Frank Webb, Don Andrews, Jan Kuntz, Arnie Westerman, Jim Kosvanec, and many others. She continued to hone her craft by attending intensive workshops for several years in North Carolina Wildacres Retreat, conducted by instructors from Ringling School of Art & Design in Sarasota, Florida. She also attended two workshops in Jamaica with Herbie Rose, watercolor instructor at Ringling. She studied watercolor portraiture in Tuscany with Ted Nuttall of the Scottsdale Art School. She continued her art education at Cedar Valley College.
She currently works in watercolor, oil, and some pastel, and continues to attend workshops as time permits. She teaches watercolor classes at Rockport Center for the Arts. She is an artist partner at Wind Way Gallery in Rockport, Texas.
