Featured Artist at Northampton Library: Sandy Askey-Adams

by Lisa DeAngelis

Northampton Township artist Sandy Askey-Adams’ home is an intimate, cozy gallery, walls covered with her paintings from floor to ceiling. It’s just one of the ways that Sandy truly lives her art. A kind of deep and soulful serenity emanates from her landscapes in a way that invites the visitor to linger.

Sandy says, “It is really more than just painting a scene. It’s about stopping time and touching the spiritual. A painting is really a reflection of the artist’s soul speaking to the viewer’s soul.”

Sandy has been creating art ever since she was old enough to hold a brush – or a pastel, her favorite medium.  She calls her paintings Impressions of Nature.  They are about “seeing the beauty and mystery of nature and inviting the viewer to take a walk along with me through my paintings.”
