Acrylic Painting Gallery
Welcome to Sandy Tweed's acrylic painting gallery
A native of the Pacific Northwest, Sandy 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.
However, her background of watercolors can still be seen in her
use of primarily transparent applied in multiple layers to achieve
works ranging from light and ethereal to bold and intense.
Sandy's subjects focus on nature, with the occasional bit of
whimsy. This is no surprise given her childhood fascination for
any and all critters, 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 she has chosen to settle permanently in
Port Townsend, WA.
