sketches while kayaking
I'm out in my kayak exploring Ontario's beautiful waterways again. While stopped for lunch I have been pulling out my little sketch book...
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.
