Sandy Blair was born and raised in Bristol, Tennessee and credits his Mama as the force that began his love of art. Attempting to pacify her two young boys, she purchased crayons and coloring books. Little did she know, at the time, she was nurturing a blooming artist. Sandy has taken oil painting lessons from Fred Morgan and has an Associates Degree in Graphic Design. His mediums of choice are graphite pencils, watercolors, acrylics, colored pencils and of course crayon. Human beings are his favorite subjects to create. As well as being a talented artist Sandy is also an extremely talented musician and part of the Blues, Roots, and Country Duo Mohawk Slim & Kimberly King. Sandy has shown his art work throughout the Southern United States and many of his pieces are part of private collections as well.

Brown’s lifelong love of movies and, most particularly, the 1940’s femme fatales of film noir, has infused and permeated his artworks for decades.His subjects tend to be the strong, and sultry stars whose images are seemingly somewhat under-represented in contemporary portraiture.Happily and accordingly, Donald’s works provide art and film aficionados with uniquely iconic paintings.
