Sandy Holcomb is named Newnan-Coweta Art Association’s Artist of the Month for the month of December. She resides in Fayette County and is a retired middle school teacher.
As a child she was always interested in drawing or coloring or anything artsy. Holcomb states, “I have a couple of paintings that were painted by my grandmother. The style is so similar to mine, that they look as if I had painted them. This is particularly interesting to me, since my grandmother died before I was even born.” After finishing high school she really wanted to major in art, but her parents were opposed to the idea. “Back then most women could either be a nurse, a secretary, or a school teacher. I eventually became a school teacher, but I promised myself that one day I would pursue the art,” Holcomb comments.
After retiring from teaching middle school (not art), she began to paint a great deal more. Holcomb painted with watercolor and pastels for a few years, but fell in love with oils when she tried them. She mostly paints with oils now. She is a student of the youthful 98 year old Helen Hayes of Newnan. Holcomb affirms, “I have learned so much from Helen.”
Sandy Holcomb is a member and past president of the Fayette Society of Fine Art in Fayetteville. She is also a member of Arts Clayton Gallery in Jonesboro, Blue Ridge Mountain Arts Association in Blue Ridge, GA, and the Fayette Arts and Crafts Entrepreneurs. She has had several paintings in the Governor’s offices in the capitol over the past three years. Recently, Governor and Mrs. Deal added one of Holcomb’s painting to their private collection, after it had hung in his ceremonial office for a year.
You can view her paintings at www.sandyholcombart.com. Holcomb is a member of the Fayetteville First United Methodist Church and the Fayette County Retired Educators.
Holcomb remarks, “Newnan is a great place with so many talented artists. I have so enjoyed getting to know and to become friends with so many of them.”
Sandy Holcomb is a member of the Newnan-Coweta Art Association. NCAA meets the third Thursday each month (from September through May) at the Harriet Alexander Art Center on Hospital Road at 7:00 p.m. Visitors and new members are welcome.
