'Dusk Aglow' 9x12 (not for sale)

'Land Spirit' 8x5 2016 watercolour and ink pen
A watercolour and ink pen rendition of the 1000 islands area as a grandmother land spirit.
I feel this painting is a sort of precursor to the other paintings, combined with another series of dot and shape paintings I made prior to this body of work.


I was born in Sudbury and am currently based in 1000 islands area; I've also lived in Ottawa, Montreal, Victoria, and Toronto.  I've had an affinity for painting with watercolours since I was small.  Most of my formal training is in music. Spending time in nature is also pretty central to my perspective. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed seeing these paintings.


  1. Your work is beautiful Sandra. Great that when i click on an image it expands (giving more justice to the paintings) and i can see the detail, the flow of the water colours.
    This series is both beautiful and inspirational.

  2. Wow, these are simply gorgeous Sandra! I really, really Love them all. I hope you're doing well.
    Love, ~Deb

  3. So beautiful Sandra. I have two of them in my house... they're exquisite.. are they on Etsy? much love, Nicci

  4. Wow Sandra, finally got a chance to stop by and I'm glad I did! Not what I was expecting having seen some of your previous work. These are whimsical and mystical, and are evocative of some First Nations art. Beautiful. When's the exhibition? -Jim
