Sandra Lee Scott
Adventurous, Eclectic, Innovative.
These three words describe Sandra Lee’s approach to art, and her approach to life.
Sandra Lee (Sandee) has expressed her creativity through a variety of mediums over the years. She’s been a serious amateur photographer for over four decades and discovered the joy of pastel painting about eight years ago, finding that these two interests complement each other. Sandee also enjoys experimenting and creating collage/mixed media projects, and alcohol ink and acrylic paintings.
After a 40-year career in the mental health field, Sandee feels fortunate to be able to now fully immerse herself in the arts. As a member and longtime board member of Yosemite Western Artists (YWA), she participates in YWA’s Photography group, Digital Art Group, and Plein Air outings. She’s been delighted to receive recognition and awards in shows sponsored by the Alliance of California Artists (ACA), YWA, the Madera County Arts Council, Sierra Artists Gallery in Mariposa, and the Clovis Art Guild. One of her mixed media pieces was most recently accepted into the 2019 Yosemite Renaissance Exhibit.
Her home overlooks the Fresno River in the Sierra foothills and she considers Yosemite National Park her “backyard.” This inspiring environment provides limitless subjects to explore creatively.
She says, “Landscapes will always appeal to me but I also like to be challenged with subject matter that is somewhat unexpected, such as tractors and galaxies!” With her mixed media pieces, she relishes creating works with a meaningful message (such as “The Forgotten Old West”) and pieces that are strictly abstract.
Her work can be seen at Timberline Gallery in Oakhurst and Circle Gallery in Madera, California.
In addition to her art, Sandee is the author of two books — Bloomin’ Boomers and the novel Reflections of Evil.
