For Sandy Delehanty, CWA, the act of painting provides a release from the stresses of life. When she is too busy to paint, ideas pile up in her brain, images begin to take shape, patterns begin to form, and she has to make time to get them out and onto canvas or paper. Painting releases all this caged creative energy and allows her to relax and have fun! She hopes that the people who give her paintings new homes get as much enjoyment from viewing them as she did from creating them.
Sandy began exhibiting her work in galleries in the early 1990s and has had numerous solo, two person and group shows since that time. Her paintings have won many awards and have been published in coffee table books: Best of Flower Painting II, Splash 9, and Splash 16. Her work has also been published in Southwest Art and International Artists magazines. Sandy has achieved Signature Status (CWA) with the prestigious California Watercolor Association after having her third painting accepted in their annual International Open Watercolor Exhibition.
