Amy Ann (Brandon) Sadle

Biography from the Archives of askART

The following, submitted April 2004 and updated January 2012, is from the artist.

Born in Council Bluffs, Iowa, Amy Sadle, a resident of Syracuse, Nebraska, has had a career as a painter and printmaker of landscapes, still lifes and buildings, working in watercolor, oil, and woodcuts. She writes that a "trademark of her style is an exaggeration of perspective and a spontaneous appearance called 'touch of hand'.  Each work is very personal to her own life experience. It is my goal to move the viewer to see their own lives and observations as important and exciting by combining materials and words or distorting perspectives often using humor or droll observation."

She was educated in Iowa, and at age twelve began to study impressionist art. After attending the University of Iowa, she married a career Navy Sea Bee, and had five children. By age 31, she was living in Syracuse, which, isolated from art centers, led to her determination to exhibit and take art instruction across the country.

Sadle attended many workshops including in Iowa City, Iowa; the University of Rhode Island at Wakefield; the International Relief Print Symposium in Tampa Florida; and in Cuba, Ohio, and Colorado as well as in Nebraska. She studied watercolor with Ed Whitney and Virginia Cobb, and printmaking with Fritz Eichenberg and Naoko Matsubarua. Other teachers are Claude Croney, and Calvin Goodman.

Her artwork can be found at the Statue of Liberty Museum in New York, the Universities of North Dakota and Nebraska, the Des Moines Art Center, Mc Cook College in Nebraska, Nebraska Public Television buidling in Lincoln, Nebraska Indian Commission, and numerous churches. She has been featured in the magazines "Pallet Talk" and "American Artist Country People". Sadle was also the editor of "Impact, the Art of Nebraska Women", for which she won an Addie Award and Superb Printing Award. She is the author of a Canadian regional history book, "Home of Wooden Ships and Iron Men."
