Meet the Author

Freelance artist Sandra McCall has been making art since majoring in commercial art. She quickly decided that the field was too restrictive for her and began working in multi-medium art and assemblage while paying the bills with a job as an accountant. She began making her original drawings and eraser carvings into rubber stamps and eventually found a whole new career. Today, Sandy has authored three books, created instructional DVDs, designs new projects and teaches rubberstamping.
