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.

With geometry and most importantly, circles a main motif of the artist, they become fundamental to To the Surface as a bridge between shapes and solid washes of colour. The brilliant blue as it fades and strengthens immediately creates a sense of serenity and calm, where she prefers to let each piece develop organically, planning minimally and allowing the movement to guide the process. Reminiscent of a clear sea or ocean, the minimal composition and light translucent nature of the ink are important in the viewing experience of the art.
