About Sandi

Sandi Hester had her first painting lessons around her grandmother’s kitchen table during long summer visits in the countryside of Franklin, Tennessee. Her grandmother was a pottery artist and first exposed Sandi to the feel of a loaded paintbrush sliding across a surface. For Sandi, the subject, color, texture and enjoyment of the creative process are very important.


“I’m always aiming for a looseness - a suggestion of what’s really there. I try to capture the beauty of the scene and the feeling of color and warmth instead of recording the details of the scene. I'm not interested in the exactness - I'm interested in how it makes me feel. Painting this way tells you more about the image or scene than when grasping for the details.” - Sandi Hester
