savannah artist + designer (directory)

Today I'm starting a directory of Savannah based artists and designers. This is an exciting enterprise as I've been doing this in my head for 15 years. I'll be featuring animation to sculpture and everything in between. I'm going to elect myself as the first to cover; seems a little silly, but...

Illustrator and painter, Katherine Sandoz has lived and worked in Savannah for the past 15 years. She's entertained stints as a professor, independent curator as well as a fibers and portrait artist. Intrigued by the people and landscapes of Savannah and coastal Georgia, Katherine Sandoz paints daily in her studio in Vernonburg. Her work is fueled by her romance with the act of painting and inspired by her surroundings and the rich history and tradition of the Deep South. By painting and drawing these subjects, she hopes to preserve, catalog and celebrate the terrain of daily life. You can see more of her work on her site or on her boutique.
