2022 COMPETING Solo Sculptors COming soon!  



Bill and Marianne found their love for sand sculpting about 18 years ago when they began competing in amateur contests. After winning several medals they became professional sculptors in 2006. Their company "The Sand Lovers" not only specializes in creating wonderful works of art from piles of sand, they also manage some the largest sand sculpting events in the U.S. In the past few years Bill and Marianne have managed 22 major sand sculpting events reaching well over a million people. Bill and Marianne will be organizing/managing this year’s event, along with hosting "Quick Sand" and providing sand sculpting demonstrations during the event.
