Sandy Hill

Sandy Hill, Leipers Fork, TN

Sandy Hill has been working with wood for over 40 years. Self-taught, his interest in wood sculpture and turning has, over the years, seem involvement in house construction, ultra-light canoe building, guitars, and fine furniture, but wood-turning has always been in the forefront of his mind.

Sandy has a deep connection and regard for nature and lives simply with his family in Middle Tennessee. Most of his work emphasizes the beauty of natural materials with the use of organic, sensual lines and surfaces. He works exclusively with native salvaged wood. His work may be found in private collections internationally.

Born and raised in Nashville, Sandy is the son of Ann Stahlman Hill, known for her longtime association with the Nashville Children’s theatre and is the nephew of Mildred Stahlman, M.D. Vanderbilt professor of Pediatrics and Pathology. Sandy and his wife, Eva, live in the woods of Williamson County in a house that he built himself.
