Who is Sandy Brand?

I'm a story teller in paint instead of words. My work expresses my emotions and spirituality.  In sharing some of it with you I become vulnerable, human and "right-sized".   I'd like my work to touch your soul and energise your love of life.


I'm a Scot and a Canadian who's proud to call Canada home. I'm a painter

and printmaker with degrees and diplomas in art, psychology, business, music and Montessori teaching. A creator, a lover of life, a mother, grandmother and a friend. I've been making a living making art for over 40 years. My prints and big paintings are in private and corporate collections, movies, ads and in your homes - what more could I ask? (If you don't have a "Sandy Brand" of your own yet check out my Gallery!)


My students think I may be contagious. Their creativity is leading them to become ecstatic over things like a neat crack in the sidewalk, or a space between the branches in a tree ... I'm glad.  Please give me a call if you have any questions or would like to see my work here.  There's no such thing as a silly question.


Some of the collections I have paintings in are: Apple Canada, Ciba Geigy,

Du Pont Pharma, Drs. C. & R. Paton, Paris, France, E.M.I. (Records), Financial Times of Canada, George Wimpey Canada, D. Metcalfe & Partner, Toronto, Minicom Data Corporation Ltd., Mobile Oil Canada (Calgary), North York Hydro, Proctor & Gamble, Royal Bank, Royal Trust, Sanctuaire de Montreal, Secretary of State Office, Ottawa, Sony of Canada Ltd., Texaco, Tridel Corp., York Trillium Development and Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo.

March 2, 2020

I'm back from B.C. with loads of new images, in my head, heart and on paper.  I revelled in playing with my "children" and their children, the eldest of whom is almost twelve, and the youngest five.  I have a video of the five year old breezing happily down the hill on his skis singing to himself, oblivious of his mother filming him. He's from Australia, and decided he quite liked snow and skiing!

Mostly the skies were blue in my eight days there, but sometimes they looked like Scottish skies with awesome cloud formations and tones in them.

So, I'm back to my studio, and look forward to helping some of you in my class at the end of March.
