About the Artist

Over a decade ago, while living in England, Sandy Melroy created an art inspired, textiles business called Silk Sensations. Her unique blend of international experience in teaching/education, retail, and design led her to incorporate painting on silk into her love of textiles and fashion design. Sandy loves to share the process of painting on silk through demonstrations and workshops for private groups, large scale format for corporate team building and school children of all ages.

Sandy trained as an instructor of textile arts and fashion design (B.A., Univ. of TN , 1979) and furthered her studies in silk painting with Liz Ashurst in London, England. She had a professional sewing business for 25 years in home and fashion textiles along with a 40 year teaching career in public and private settings for ages 4 – adult.
