In the summer of 2002 I began a new project--ISLANDS: painting the spirit of the Pacific Northwest--exploring watershed issues & totem animals of our Pacific coastal region.

Sixteen core images arose spontaneously after spending a solitary day at the beach. The images challenged me--I didn't know how to paint them. I began an unforeseeable journey of research & experimentation.

To bring forth the 16 large shamanic images, many works are needed, along with writing music & lyrics. I've envisioned meeting with fishermen, wildlife bioligists, first people, foresters, activists, & kindred artists. I've hoped to foster collaborative installations & performances, to infuse the project with community input & value.

By the end of 2005, ISLANDS had grown to 200 pieces, including large & small acrylic & watercolor paintings; pastel, charcoal, & ink drawings; experimental mixed media pieces; & linocuts. Works have been shown at environmental centers & festivals, art galleries, restaurants, public hearings, fundraisers, & civic meetings.

You can help make ISLANDS a truly effective project. You can
  • Sponsor with a direct grant
  • Buy art work
  • Exhibit work for sale
  • Publicize the proect
  • Host public forums
  • Produce mixed media events
  • Commission public works

The intent of ISLANDS is to celebrate ecological attitudes & actions. Seeking a visual voice for salmon, redwood, otter, tule, bat, eelgrass, & bear is my effort to honor our beautiful watershed & its diverse inhabitants.

Please contact me at sandoak@sonic.net or 707 824-8189 to participate in the project, ask questions, give suggestions, or visit my studio. You can see other ISLANDS images & related works on my new website, www.sandyeastoak.com. Thank you.
