Super soft and cute. The porcupine serves as a warning: "I'm cute, but don;t mess with me."

This seller's work is amazing - wonderful workmanship & quality. It's GORGEOUS!!! Her work is in such high demand that it may take a couple of months for her to complete each order, but it is well worth the wait! Her pieces are THAT GOOD!!!!

About

The Story of Sandhra Lee

In order to tell you about my art, I need to tell you who I am. My name is Sandra. My mother says that she wanted to name me Kathleen, but my grandmother, a sturdy and strong-willed farmer's wife, insisted that my name be Sandra. My mother doesn't remember why, and my grandmother passed away before I could ask her.

I chose to use SandhraLee on Etsy because I wanted a name close to my own, but one that distinguished me from the other Sandra Lees in the world, one of whom is quite famous. One day I was reading an article on Gandhi when it occurred to me that his name was a near-rhyme to Sandi, my childhood nickname. It was then that I decided to add the "h" to Sandra, making it Sandhra. It reminds me to be strong, compassionate, and peaceful, and to do my best to follow the example set by Gandhi in whatever small way that I can.

My great-great grandmother was Cherokee, so perhaps my joy in celebrating Nature comes from that ancestral DNA. As a girl I was always outdoors exploring the fields, forests, ponds, and creeks surrounding my childhood home in northeastern Ohio. Mother Earth provided the most wonderful art supplies! There were clover blossoms for making necklaces, earth-red sandstones for drawing on the driveway, and fallen branches to make pretend bows and arrows - necessary accessories for the crayon-decorated Indian princess dress that I made from an old pillowcase. My obsession to create art surely took root at this magical time in my childhood.

    Although I now live in the desert southwest, my artistic inspiration comes primarily from my childhood memories of growing up near my grandparents' farm in northeastern Ohio. and later from the many years I lived on the Gulf Coast of Florida.
