Sandy Cook retired to Keuka Lake from New Jersey after raising a family and having a career in teaching. Shortly after moving to the area, she walked into the Arts Center of Yates County and knew she had found her calling. She took her first painting class and got hooked. She has been painting non-stop ever since in oil and pastel. Her devotion to the arts has taken her to numerous workshops, both locally and across the country.
Both Sandy and her husband enjoy the excitement of travel and her work reflects many of the spectacular sights they have encountered in recent years. Beautiful places, things, and moments inspire her to paint subjects in vivid and rich colors.
Sandy’s rapid maturation as a painter earned her the Artist of the Year Award for 2016 from the Arts Center of Yates County. In May 2019, Sandy was the Artist in Focus at the Franklin Street Gallery in Watkins Glen. Sandy’s paintings are currently displayed at the Franklin Street Gallery in Watkins Glen, the Arts Center of Yates County and The Artist’s Lounge in Seneca Falls.
