Sandra Oliver

A native of North Carolina and a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNC-G), Sandra Oliver has called South Carolina home since moving here in 1976. She retired from the South Carolina public schools after teaching business, mathematics, and adult education.

She first developed an interest in art after moving to Newberry, SC, in 1993 when she studied pastel and oil painting for a brief period. Devoting her time to her family and teaching, Sandra did not resume her art studies until mid-2011.

Sandra’s primary medium is watercolor, although she occasionally works in acrylics. She has been juried into the South Carolina State Fair Fine Arts Exhibit, Amateur Division, every year since 2011. She has also exhibited paintings in Crooked Creek Juried Art Exhibition, Union County Arts Council Juried Art Show, Still Hopes Exhibit, Irmo Library Exhibit, North Charleston Juried Art Show, Old Santee Canal Juried Art Show (Moncks Corner), and Art Flow (Allendale). She has paintings in The Gallery in Newberry. Her collage and watercolor work, “Orchid,” won the Post Card Award in the Crooked Creek Juried Art Exhibition in 2017.

An active member of Crooked Creek Art League since 2014, Sandra has served as president, Juried Art Exhibition co-chair, workshop coordinator, and is currently publicity chair.
