Sandra Gross

Sandy Gross has been visiting Sanibel for 40 years.  She has many fond memories, looking for the elusive junonia with her mom and flying kites on the very same East End beach where she spends her vacations with her family.

Following her passions in Art and Education, Sandy founded Brazee Studios,  an art facility which is home to 30 other artists, a glass school and six beehives in a reclaimed factory on a one-acre urban plot in the heart of Cincinnati.  It is celebrating 10 years this year!

In recent years, she has taken her passion for Food and Bees and co-founded Sleepy Bee Café which has three locations and focuses on  Community, Sustainable Local Food, and of course Art where she and her team create all of the interior pieces and glass light fixtures.

In her freetime, she loves to visit with all of the creatures in her gardens, make Art and spend as much time with her family as possible.  Sandy is looking forward to returning to the SCCF Board and bringing her passions of Nature, Art and Education.
