Butch Young, a.k.a., the Sandwitch

Butch's Bio

Butch grew up in New mexico, and graduated from the university of new mexico with a degree in English. Her minor emphases were in French, art and physiology. Not really knowing what she wanted to be when she grew up, she decided to do whatever she liked until she didn't like it any more, and then move on to the next like. This resulted in many diverse potential careers beginning with police officer, theater manager, bartender, screenwriter, stunt person, terrible actor and personal assistant to a well-known actor. A left turn back to Albuquerque resulted in being a three bakery/restaurant owner, until an unfortunate set of circumstances occurred, and she lost everything. This is when she found decorative sandblasting, strictly by accident, and it stuck.

Thirty one years later, she loves it more than ever. In late 2017, she relocated to Las Cruces, New Mexico, where she and her partner of 20+ years, Judy, maintain a working studio. Butch continues to engage and interact with her community at their pop-up shop at the local Farmer's Market. It's an exciting time for them and we'll see what the rest of Butch's life holds. Stay tuned.
