This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Dubuque, Iowa, Sandy Scott became one of the foremost animal sculptors in the Southwest in the late 20th century.  Her subjects include all kinds of birds as well as domestic and wild animals.

At age two, she moved with her family to Tulsa, Oklahoma where she lived until enrolling in the Kansas City Art Institute from 1961 to 1965.  She then worked for Calvin Motion Pictures in animation and worked as a flight attendant and also earned her pilot's license.

In 1969, she moved to Hawaii and shortly after to San Francisco, where she worked as a portrait artist and illustrator.  She also spent much time in wilderness areas, did off-shore sailing, and traveled in Europe.  In 1975, she moved to a rural area near Austin, Texas and began doing etchings, making a name for herself with sporting scenes.  In 1978, she did a series of rodeo etchings for the National Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma and had a one-woman show there of more than 60 etchings.

That same year, she bought a cabin at Lake of the Woods, Ontario, and in 1982, she completed her first sculpture, which began a new and highly productive phase of her career.

In the next two decades she won numerous awards and was voted into prestigious organizations including the Pen and Brush and Northwest Rendezvous Group.  In 1987, she bought a former canning factory on ten acres near Fort Collins, Colorado, and from then divided her time between there and her island home at Lake of the Woods in Ontario, Canada.

Biography from Altermann Galleries and Auctioneers, V:
Sculptor and printmaker Sandy Scott feels very strongly for, and about, her subject.  She has quickly climbed to the top of her field using observation, incorporating a sense of motion and mood and attentively fine tuning her skills.  A widely admired printmaker of sporting scene etchings in the 1970s, Scott turned to sculpting in the early 1980s, focusing primarily on birds.  Nearly two decades later, she has matured technically and artistically moving between subjects wild and domestic, including keen-eyed eagles, sinuous trout, elegant dogs, robust pigs, powerful horses, exotic macaws and arrogant roosters.

Robin Salmon, curator of sculpture at Brookgreen Gardens, writes of Scott that she is "the continuing thread of the animalier in American art." The book, Spirit of the Wild Things, published on the occasion of the Gilcrease Museum Rendezvous '98, documents Scott's career and artistic development. 

"With a father who is an outdoorsman, my love of the outdoors was cultivated at an early age," explains Sandy. "I've always loved to fish and I've backpacked and camped in some of this country's most beautiful places." This life-style has left lasting impressions on Sandy, and it is this feeling of love for nature which radiates from her work.

Although at times she works in the field, Sandy prefers the calm of the studio for her creative work. "But it is not feasible to stage a herd of elk or a gaggle of geese in my studio," she says, "so I rely on my field trips for inspiration. Much of my field work is done with a camera, and I have thousands of frames of 35mm film which provide a very valuable source of reference. I strive to retain in my work the feeling and emotion experienced while observing, sketching, and photographing in the field."

Biography from Whistle Pik Galleries:
Sculptor and printmaker (etchings), Sandy Scott, feels very strongly for and about her subjects. A widely admired etcher of sporting scenes in the 1970s, Scott turned to sculpting in the early 1980s, focusing primarily on birds. Nearly two decades later, she has matured technically and artistically, moving adeptly between subjects wild and domestic, including keen-eyed eagles, sinuous trout, elegant dogs, robust pigs, powerful horses, exotic macaws and arrogant roosters.

Today Scott is recognized as one of the country’s premier animal sculptors, interweaving, as Robin Salmon, curator of sculpture at Brookgreen Gardens, writes, “the continuing thread of the animalier in American art.”

The book, Spirit of the Wild Things, published on the occasion of the Gilcrease Museum Rendezvous 1998, documents Scott’s career and artistic development. Sandy’s unique background has enabled her to capture the spirit of her subjects with a heartfelt vitality and technical skill. “With a father who is an outdoorsman, my love of the outdoors was cultivated at an early age,” explains Sandy. “I’ve always loved to fish and I’ve backpacked and camped in some of this country’s most beautiful places.”

This lifestyle has left lasting impressions on Sandy, and it is this feeling of love for nature which radiates from her work.Although at times she works from life, Sandy prefers the calm of the studio for her creative work. “But it is not feasible to stage a herd of elk or a gaggle of geese in my studio,” she says, “so I rely on my field trips for inspiration. Much of my field work is done with a camera, and I have thousands of frames of 35mm film which provide a very valuable source of reference. I strive to retain in my work the feeling and emotion experienced while observing, sketching, and photographing in the field.”

Biography from Morris & Whiteside Galleries:
Known for her animal sculpture, Sandy Scott first gained artistic recognition for her sporting scene etchings in the 1970s.  Moving to sculpture in the early 1980s, Scott used observation and a sense of motion to create works that were not only graceful, but accurate representations of the wild animals of which she is so fond.

Growing up with a father who was an avid outdoorsman allowed Sandy the opportunity to garner an appreciation for the beauty and practicality of wild animals.  It is this love of nature and wild life that is reflected in her work, from soaring eagles to lumbering bears, from arrogant roosters to elegant dogs.  Using her camera to capture these creatures in their natural state allows Scott to work from reference in her studio. Today she continues to work from her studio in Colorado, capturing in bronze the creatures of the region.
