Equals in most things, Skip and I collaborate on all of the projects we do for Shadowbend Studios. We share a perfect balance of strengths to form a great partnership for creating and problem solving.
My skill set lies in visual and graphic design (frontend), Skips’ in layout and coding (backend). We can attack the same problem from opposite ends and come up with great solutions for any client issue.
Having worked in Office Management for years before going back to school for an Arts degree, I am able to take over the day-to-day administrative office duties for Skip too. Ensuring daily office responsibilities are up to date makes it easier for Skip to concentrate on building websites and serving clients needs. Again, a perfect balance!

Sandy studied Graphic Design, Art History and Dance in college. She also spent several years as President of the Board for the West Africa Cultural Arts Institute (WACAI) in Eugene, Oregon.
Sandy has spent most of her life expressing herself through dance, creating custom jewelry, handmade artist books and more recently, not-so-fine art. She also loves refinishing furniture. In her younger days, Sandy worked as a sailmaker and proudly sailed across the Pacific Ocean with two crewmates during Hurricane Iniki* in September of 1992 and lived to tell about it. In her “spare” time she finds time cooking for family and friends and is grateful for all the blessings life has offered to her.
Sandy believes everything can be made better after a nap or time spent in nature.
* (Hawaiian: ʻiniki meaning “strong and piercing wind” was the most powerful hurricane to strike the U.S. state of Hawaii in recorded history)
