With the marshes, waterways and people of the low-country offering perennial inspiration, Katherine Sandoz examines the quotidian and offers work that celebrates what is precious and unique. She studies, analyzes, and reframes small moments, the mundane, neglected details of the day and the diurnal rhythms that, in turn, inspire illustrations, paintings, fibers-based works, installations and public art. She creates richly woven abstract landscapes utilizing passages of transparent and opaque, warm and cool, textured and smooth layers of water-based media. These dynamic compositions allow the viewer to experience the subject matter from multiple vantage points at once.
Sandoz studied French and International Relations at Mount Holyoke College prior to receiving an MFA in illustration and an MFA in painting at SCAD. She is a former professor of illustration, also at SCAD. Sandoz’ work hangs in private and public spaces worldwide.
