Collection: Sandi Cook

Sandi knew that she wanted to be an artist after successfully drawing an oversized Charles Shultz Snoopy character for the bulletin board of her sixth grade class. She’s been creating ever since.

She has been an artist in a variety of creative fields. Degreed in Advertising Design, she began her career as a Graphic Designer and Art Director. During this time, an art director credit on a feature film intrigued her and prompted her to pursue and accomplish the goal of art directing a motion picture.

While working for many years in all areas of film production art departments, Sandi accrued a variety of skills that attracted several clients outside of the film industry. As a result, she moved back home to Indianapolis and started a small design business designing sets and stages for corporate events and local productions. She also painted and distressed finishes of cabinetry, furniture, and musical instruments. She was also commissioned to paint murals.

This introduced Sandi to employers in the music industry for whom she was a production and wardrobe coordinator with touring bands. The sporadic schedules of these bands provided her the occasional downtime to pursue her passion of oil painting.

Sandi transitioned into painting full time in March of 2020.
