Sandy Scott

Sandy Scott was trained at the Kansas City Art Institute, and worked as an animation background artist for the motion picture industry. She then turned her attention to etching and printmaking in the 1970s and sculpture in the 1980s. She maintains studios in Lander, Wyoming; Lake of the Woods, Ontario, Canada; and Larimer County, Colorado. Surrounded by mountains, lakes and streams she is an avid outdoors woman, licensed pilot, and lives the life she depicts.  She is a fellow of the National Sculpture Society, the National Art Club, the American Artist Professional League, the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, the New York Pen and Brush, and the Society of Animal Artists.

She has won awards for sculpture and etching and her monumental Presidential Eagle is installed at the entrance to the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas, and the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Jackson, Wy.  Scott’s work is included in the collections of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum; the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Jackson, Wy;  the R.W. Norton Museum, Shreveport, LA; The United States Military Academy, West Point, NY; Brookgreen Gardens, Murrells Inlet, SC and Gilcrease Museum, Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Scott was selected as one of the “Ten Most Prominent People in western art by Southwest Art Magazine in 2013.  

In 2013 the Briscoe Western Art Museum presented Sandy the Legacy Award for Lifetime Achievement.  

“The most profound realization of my life is that there are people I have never met who live with my art, and therefore I share with them a personal, if not intimate relationship,” Scott said.
