I received a copy of Contemporary Sand Sculpture from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Contemporary Sand Sculpture is a fantastic read, especially if you’re a fan of the artwork (naturally) and would love to see some of the actual artists behind the pieces. It includes an interesting introduction, which explains the author’s perspective on the art (as well as their own additions to the style).

This book includes multiple artists as well as a small sampling of each of their best works. I never would have dreamed that there are that many sand sculptors out there, but it’s wonderful to see. It hadn’t actually occurred to me before reading this novel that there were actual companies that got paid for making sand sculptures (I had known that there were artists that dedicated their lives to it – but I’m ashamed to admit I hadn’t thought much more on the matter), so this fact along with many others was mind blowing for me. I’m so happy I read this, not only did I get to see a lot of beautiful photos, but I got to learn a little bit about a bunch of artists I had previously been unaware of.



About Liz

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try and artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. The facts: My favorite color is constantly changing, so don’t worry about trying to keep up with that! I’m in my 20’s, married, and looking to find the perfect job for me (ideally something that can involve my creativity or my love of animals). I have 6 cats (If we’re being technical, I have 2 cats and my parents have 4), a bearded dragon, a parakeet, and two betas. I adore all of them, and they frequently are my photography models. My blog will primarily be consisting of my 365 (366) photography project, updated daily (hopefully). I’m also working on a 52 weeks project, where I try a new type of photography style or technique each week. That will be updated as the photos are processed.
