About the Artist

Sandee at work

Sculptress Sandra (Sandee) Spahr lives in Guilford, Conn., in New Haven County, on the state’s eastern shoreline. She creates her works of art primarily from her studio in her home.

A Pennsylvania native, she graduated from Kutztown (Pa.) University in 1967 with a degree in Art Education. She then began her teaching career in Connecticut, where she taught art, crafts, photography, and sculpture in the Stratford School District for more than thirty years.

During her teaching career and beyond, she studied stone sculpture with Sara Aldouby, wood sculpture with Toshio Odate, fiber sculpture at the Brookfield (Conn.) Craft Center, and apoxie sculpture with Marc-Anthony Massaro. She went on to her earn her Master’s and Sixth-Year degrees in Art from Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven.

New sculpture

Sandee’s love for art has allowed her many privileges. She has traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and studied primarily in Italy to expand and fulfill her artistic endeavors. Her sculpture art has been shown in numerous venues throughout Connecticut and Vermont, as well as at her private studio at home.

She also continues to remain involved in various associations as an active member in The Society of Connecticut Sculptors (Essex, Conn.), the Lyme Art Association (Old Lyme, Conn.), the Southern Vermont Arts Association, and the Shoreline Arts Trail Open Studios (Guilford, Conn.).

In the studio

Although Sandee has created considerable work in paintings, fibers and wood, her most recent concentration has been in stone, apoxie and bronze structures. She has offered her exclusive works to the public through Sandee Spahr Sculpture for the last 10 years.
