Artist Bruce Chandler

Bruce Chandler was born in South Carolina and attended the Maryland School of Art and Design. She is a Signature Member of both the International Society of Experimental Artists and North and South Carolina Watercolor Societies. Painter, teacher, muralist, and illustrator, Bruce is both a highly accomplished artist and a highly respected instructor. Winning the South Carolina Governor’s Award and hosting several art programs on ETV are among her notable achievements. “I paint for the process—the pure enjoyment of painting. I can’t imagine not painting and I’m thankful for the many endeavors of life that art led me towards.”

The illustrations in Tales of the Tide are all original works by Chandler,
conveying the essence of people and place in each story. I am truly
grateful for her partnership in this project, which would have not been
possible without her.
