She passed away March of 2010.
It would be a pity if that part of Chan's artwork, so beautiful and meaningful, were unknown to the fans who came after. So, with the permission of her family, all of her art published in B&B zines has been scanned and posted here. It was a project to celebrate Chan, but instead it became one more gift from her to the fandom. In fact, while working at the project, something beautiful became apparent, and it's there for all to see and experience: the evident, touching, thrilling development of her talent. You can see the first drawings, tentative, a bit simple, a bit rigid, which in time slowly improve and become the ripe, magical art we admire in her later works. 
Her Correspondence Regarding Art
Our late, beloved Sandy Chandler Shelton (“Chan”) has left us a body of artwork that continues to amaze and inspire us. It’s hard to believe, but she once was unsure of her talents and struggled to improve her work. Being largely self-taught, she on occasion asked advice from fandom artists she admired. One of these artists, well-known and much admired in fandom, became a confidant and advisor to her. They engaged in a lively correspondence, much of which was saved by Chan. As we celebrate Chan’s life on this third anniversary of the day she was taken from us, we present excerpts from this correspondence. These letters are testimony to several facts – that fandom can inspire you to creativity you may not have realized was locked inside of you, and that when fans “share the light” with each other, beautiful things can happen.
