Sandra L. Dodge grew up in New England. She earned a Diploma in Art and a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of New Hampshire. She also has a Master’s degree in Mental Health Councilling from New England College. She taught for many years before becoming licensed as a children’s therapist. Now that she is semi-retired, Sandy has more time to develop her stories, poetry, and artwork.
Her heritage includes just about every people group on PEI. She has Acadian, Celtic, and Indigenous roots; so she never lacks inspiration. Sandy works mostly in watercolour and ink. She has written and illustrated three children’s picture books. You can also find her poetry on the PEI poet laureate site: poetrypei.com.
