Award-winning watercolorist Sandra (Sandie) Seckington is a second-generation native San Diegan who grew up in a family that highly valued the arts. With painters and musicians on both sides of the family, her love of art in all its forms was a given.
Sandie graduated from San Diego State University with a B.A. degree in English and minors in Sociology and Art. Interspersed between a career as a social worker and then a stay-at-home mom to two active children and work in the health care field, Sandie painted and drew whenever she had the opportunity. During this period of time she was fortunate enough to study with the late watercolorist Robert Landry.
Following her retirement, Sandie enrolled in continuing Adult Education watercolor classes and continues to participate in many of the excellent water media classes and workshops instructed by nationally / internationally acclaimed artists offered by the San Diego Watercolor Society. Diligent study and “studio time” have brought increasing recognition of her work and numerous awards, including her first acceptance into the San Diego Watercolor Society’s 2019 International Exhibition.
