Everett native showcases their sand sculpture at Revere Beach!

Deb Barrett-Cutulle, Everett native has a background in illustration, which has transferred nicely to sculpting in sand.

Before she begins a sculpture she draws it out. Then it is on to her sandboxes, one in her backyard and one tabletop version. The key is in the sculpture's eye.
