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.

I've been drawing a lot recently and doing small paintings as I travel. While I've been around them, my grandchildren have been doing a bit as well. The drawing was a joint project with Ranger. He started it with a house, then we took turns talking about what we might add and what we wanted in it, till it was "done".

We even found a big canvas for him. I loved the immediacy of his brushstrokes, and how he knew exactly what colour he wanted where. The red flower above is his too. I couldn't have done better myself! He also created an almost see through white ghostly image, (I think it was a space ship) on purpose ... oh the joys of being five!
