About The Artist
Sandra Brue was born in Chicago, Illinois. When she was three years old, her family moved to San Diego, California. Sandra's artistic ability came from her father, a plumbing contractor by trade. In his free time, he enjoyed calligraphy and photography. Sandra inherited her business sense, persistence, and creativity from her mother, who was born in Italy.
As a gifted seamstress, she taught Sandra the importance of quality workmanship and attention to detail.
The youngest of four children, Sandra showed artistic talent early on by carving animal sculptures from Ivory soap. Her love for animals grew from her childhood as well. Sandra was allowed to keep most animals she brought Home Page as long as they were male. Her father, a responsible pet owner ahead of his time, made sure that the family "zoo" would not grow beyond a manageable size through unwanted litters.
Sandra Brue lives in San Diego and enjoys traveling, reading, theater, dining out, and crossword puzzles. She is a history buff who is especially interested in ancient Roman times. She studied art at the University of San Diego and San Diego State University. Prior to starting Sandicast, Sandra was a freelance graphic designer for 12 years. She has four grown children and four grandchildren. Pets include an English Mastiff dog,
Brutus, and two cats, Ansel and Cinder. She is active in the community and serves on several boards.
