Sandy Cox is a native Georgian – born and raised in Cordele, and currently living in LaGrange. She has always appreciated the beauty that surrounds her, and it was after her two children were grown that she discovered her love of painting.
Cox’s medium of choice is oil, and she works with a limited palette, finding this to contribute to more visually harmonious paintings. She has studied with many regional and international artists, including Jo Ann Williams Walker, Perry Austen, Guido Frick, Bill Davidson, Jim Richards, and Nancy Franke, all of whom have influenced her impressionistic style. Cox’s subject matter ranges from landscapes to still life, and from to wildlife to figurative.
She finds inspiration all around her. It is the light that draws her in to a scene and makes it come to life, and she seeks to convey that sense of light and life in her paintings. “The subjects that I choose to paint are those special, everyday moments in life - a child playing in the surf, water lilies in the pond, a beautiful sunset, a bird perched on his house, a cloudy sky, a couple strolling down the street. We don't have to travel far and wide to find such beauty, it surrounds us every day. It is my hope that these everyday scenes will bring a touch of beauty and joy into your life.”
