New West Designs
Unique Art of the Southwest
Artist: Sandy Maguire
Sandy Maguire never had an art class in her life! And she never was able to take a shop class because girls were not allowed to take shop when she went to high school! So her ability to create such unique and totally one of a kind art pieces can only be explained by a real love for beauty, nature, the western culture, and a deep gratitude for such a gift from God, divine Love.
She did learn to wield a mean hammer, however, by helping her Granddad, who was a rancher in Montrose. CO, fix fence, build barns, repair tractors, and cut hay. That lifestyle has been a deep influence through her entire life and also influences today the type of art pieces she creates.
Sandy began this creative expression of art in 2009 and the work has evolved into the pieces you can view in the gallery. Her nephew, Gary Maloney of Flat Stick LLC, is making the custom frames for each piece of art. Sandy's prior career was in education. She served as a middle school principal for 17 years after spending 13 years in the classroom.
