Connie Sandage Hendrix has made the transition to sculpture and painting full time as of January 2003. The real commitment was when she and her husband, Architectural Illustrator Charlie Manus, moved to Marble, Colorado this same year. Marble is located between two quarrys which helps make the location ideal for a stone sculptor. For a painter, the scenery offers inspiration in abundance for painting and teaching. Connie chose Colorado because of the appreciation of art and the support given to artists. She has been very prolific over the years sculpting, painting and teaching while earning her living in the advertising world at the same time. Since Connie has been able to devote full time to her fine arts, she is experiencing considerable growth and success.
