Since her graduation in 1970 from SUNY New Paltz, Sandra Leavens Maler has been immersed in the wonderful world of art. Her Art teaching career began in 1970 at the Oregon Avenue Middle School, Patchogue/Medford School District, New York and culminated in her retirement from the South Country Central School District, Bellport, New York in 2003. 

During her tenure she was an active member of  Long Island Art Teachers Association (LIATA), New York State Art Teachers Association (NYSATA), the Bellport Teachers Association (BTA) and  New York State United Teachers (NYSUT). In 1998 she became a member of the Bell Street Artists and has been exhibiting with them at local colleges, libraries and community venues several times a year ever since. 

In the early Spring of 2007 Sandy began exhibiting her work on a continual basis at the Phoenix Fine Arts Gallery, Bellport New York. Her success as a painter surely stems from her love for her subject matter. Sandy paints beaches and her favorite summer community, Davis Park, Long Island, New York, in bright, true colors with strong contrasts and cast shadows in acrylics on canvas. 

In 2004 she developed another method for conveying the joy and calmness found ocean side. Sandy began using birch plywood as her background to showcase favorite shore birds, Sanderlings and Sandpipers in particular. Sandy makes use of the beautiful patterns in the wood as the sand and water and often the sky too. She paints with both Latex and Acrylics on the support, often with many layers of glaze to produce these unique “portraits”, which are then neatly framed in ˝ inch mahogany, pine or oak. Sandy’s work can be found in over 60 private and public collections.

     All birds on Birch Plywood are framed in 1/2" oak, pine or mahogany.
