Sandra Babb has a lovely studio in North Georgia, but her favorite “place” to paint is outdoors searching for early morning and afternoon light patterns. She attempts to capture impressions of “a sense of place” on canvas in oils or pastels. She enjoys all mediums and has always found painting people a delightful challenge. She may be contacted at Sandra@babb.com or www.sandrababb.com.
Sandra is currently showing at Unitarian Universalist Church, FoodWorks Restaurant, the Business Development Center in Chattanooga, and ArtCrafters in Dayton, TN. She exhibits at the Ringgold Art and Frame Gallery, the Downtown Gallery and the Booth Borderlands Gallery in Cartersville. Sandra is the president of the Civic Arts League and has edited the Civic monthly newsletter for 5 years. She is also a member of the Booth Artist Guild and the Society of American Portrait Artists. She is an associate member of the Booth Western Museum. She has a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and is currently teaching children’s classes at the Creative Arts Guild, Dalton, GA and teaching private lessons in her studio.
Her Jeep is loaded with an old Soltek easel, Gamblin oil paints, Sourcetec linen panels, brushes, a cooler with cold Dr. Pepper, and sunscreen. She doesn’t forget the mosquito spray or the “Afterbite”.
“My favorite time is spent outdoors in the early morning hours sensing the scurrying of small animals as they search for breakfast. I like to watch the sun break forth a new day. I share my excitement with others through private lessons, small classes, and travel. I thank God for blessing me in this way.
