Watercolor artist Sandy St.George died August 30 at age 80. Born in Arkansas, she spent her teenage years on the East Coast where she began a life that family members describe as that of a hippie, poet traveler and folksinger. She first visited New Mexico during an extended roadtrip in a Volkswagen bus.

Sandra Robinson St.George earned a bachelor’s degree in New Hampshire and later a masters and doctorate at the University of New Mexico.

In her later years, she returned to her passion for art to become a skilled watercolorist.

She is survived by her husband, Arthur, son Aaron and step-daughter Amitai, as well as four grandchildren.
