I started working in ceramics during high school in 1965 working and studying with David Suits, Clayton Bailey and Tom Lawless. College study was with Sue Eisler, Peter Voulkus, Jack Canon, Dan Anderson, Tasheko Takazu, Wayne Higby and Ken Ferguson completing a Master in Fine Art in Ceramics and Sculpture. Post graduation study continued with Paul Soldner and Tony Heslop. Sandy taught secondary education in Saint Louis, Missouri and Colorado Springs, Colorado.
