About Sandi Whetzel

As a teen, before Sandi even thought of becoming an artist, her father's modest log truck driving income did not provide many luxuries. She lived by a favorite motto: '...necessity is the mother of invention.' When something was too expensive, she took pride in creating her personal version of an acceptable substitute for that item; something she could be proud to own.

As part of her do-it-yourself philosophy, Sandi became an accomplished seamstress, fabricating her wardrobe and items to decorate her home after she married. Mesmerized by PBS TV art demo shows, Sandi started painting her hand-fashioned garments. Near her 40th birthday, the Whetzels purchased new furniture. Wall art was not in their budget. Recalling the PBS art shows and her fabric painting, Sandi decided to create her own paintings. She plunged into oil painting with passion; learning by trial and error.

After a few years of experimentation, Sandi met a talented community college instructor, Bonnie Hill, of Roseburg, OR. After four years of instruction with her, Bonnie persuaded Sandi to instruct her art classes after she left. Sandi instructed art at Umpqua College from 1997 to 2013. Later Sandi switched from oils to acrylics because of their increased versatility and variety of textures. Bonnie continues as her mentor and close friend.
