Sandy Palasti is a contemporary artist who lives in Charlotte, NC and Austin, TX. Born in New Jersey, Sandy pursued a career in Surgery and practiced Pediatric ENT in Charlotte for fourteen years before she retired at age 45. Since then, she has been a writer, a musician, and a ceramicist, finally finding her truest expression in abstract painting. Her main body of work employs layered acrylics, pastels, and oils to explore the duality of personality that exists within all of us. She lives with her husband and dogs in Charlotte, though never far from her daughter in Austin. Every morning, she is in her studio. In the afternoon, you'll find her out on some hiking trail deep into her latest podcast obsession!
