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 hope you all had a good Christmas, and generally enjoyed your holidays. For those who had to work, "thank you", I'm sure we need what you were doing, and I'm grateful you are able to be there.

Louise and I didn't get kayaking unfortunately, the lake was just, like Banbi says, "too hard". However, it's thawing nicely, and we aim on being out there by New Year.

There was lots to draw over christmas, mainly it was edible! I spent hours on the phone to those near and dear to me as well as those far away that I don't get to talk to so often; and I loved every minute.

Keep drawing and painting folks, and I'll show you some of the things I've been up to here soon.
