California-based Dr. Brandy, a family counsellor by trade, is naturally drawn to expressionism and abstract scenes. She translates these thoughts and emotions into something that can be seen and experienced by the viewer. Each piece is inspired by a personal experience and often communicates the complicated, inspiring, and joyful nature of working with children and families.

Forest green, chalky purples and faded ochre bubbles dominate the canvas, where the dispersed nature of the ink allow for a layering of colour to create an enticing optical illusion. For Dr. Brandy creating a sense of serenity and calm, where the piece develops organically, planning minimally and allowing the movement to guide the process is extremely important, especially in regards to the viewing experience of the art. Thus despite the juxtaposing colours, they work in connection to not dramatically overwhelm the viewer.
