Sandy Scott was trained at the Kansas City Art Institute. She worked as an animation back- ground artist for the motion picture industry before turning her attention to etching and printmaking in the 1970s and to sculpture in the 1980s.
A licensed pilot for more than 30 years, she feels her knowledge of aerodynamics has been helpful in achieving the illusion of movement in her bird sculpture. The Thomas Gilcrease Museum honored Sandy with a major retrospective exhibition in "Rendezvous '98". Spirit of the Wild Things, a book about Sandy's work was published in 1998.
Sandy's work may be seen in many public installations and museums, including: National Wildlife Museum, Jackson, WY; 1% for Arts Fountain Commission, Albuquerque, NM; Opryland Hotel, Nashville, TN; Margaret Thatcher, Great Britain; R.W. Norton Museum, Shreveport, LA; Trammell Crow Corp., Chicago, IL; Museum of Arts and Crafts, San Antonio, TX; R.D.

It includes: The National Academy of Design, New York; Allied Artists, New York; New York Pen and Brush; American Artist's Professional League.; Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, New York; Gold Medal for Sculpture, National Academy of Western Art.
