Sandy Arnault was born and raised in Albert Lea, Minnesota. She began by drawing horses with her father at a young age and then started painting at age ten. Farming life and rural life lessons are her foundation. Sandy’s success as an artist has been shaped by her childhood, the opportunity to study with professional artists, and her continuous learning over the years.
Her respect and love of the land is shown in her art. Farm animals and nature are naturally what Sandy loves to paint. Her work is representational art. Paintings she has done have been shown in many places throughout the world, such as Arkansas, Arizona, Mississippi, Minnesota, Texas, and Paris, France.
Having the privilege to study with several professional artists has led to her growth as an artist. Some of these accomplished artists are Greg Beecham, Bruce Greene, Martin Grelle, Phil Beck, John Fawcett, and Tina Garrett. Sandy has had many significant experiences during her journey as an artist but one particular highlight was in 2000. Sandy and a large group of other Americans painted in the famous Louvre in Paris, France. The Louvre is the world’s largest museum and an incredible historical monument. This three week endeavor was invaluable. She has also traveled to Spain, Canada, Central America, and across the United States to study the works of many famous artists.
Sandy and her husband, Larry, reside in Searcy, Arkansas on a 70 acre farm where they continue the tradition of raising cattle, horses, and Australian Shepherds. Sandy owns and operates her own art studio on the back of their land. It is Trinity Art Studio, a place for artists to gather and paint nature’s beauty. This also serves as a place for teachers to hold art and painting workshops. It allows teachers and students to observe nature in a peaceful environment.
