Art Benefits: spring home issue YAM Magazine features work by local Victoria artists.

The March/April issue of YAM Magazine includes a feature about the benefits of art, and how a well chosen original piece of Art enriches your home. The selected artworks come from a number of Vancouver Island and local Victoria fine artists; painters, sculptors, wood and glass artists. I’m delighted to say the feature includes one of my landscape paintings, created in Summer 2020. A painting of the road to Red Rocks in Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta. In the feature I talk about my distinct style of Canadian Pop Art painting, what art adds to a home and how I feel about seeing my work on the wall of a collectors beautiful home. You can read more including what I think about matching art to the couch, online here.

If you are in the greater Victoria area, you can pick up a copy of the current issue at the following locations.

Featured On Forbes – Canadian Artists On NYC Art Collectors Radar

Ten years ago I was fortunate enough to bid adieu to my day job and concentrate fully on nothing but my career as a contemporary Canadian artist. Thankful for this opportunity and mindful of the responsibility it carried, I was up for the challenge and ready to take on the art world. In the past ten years I have connected with many arts professionals around the world, thanks to the ability the Internet affords me to move from a local platform to a world wide market. Through these connections, I have found support and interest in my artwork. Whether it be curators, art gallery owners, publishers, art bloggers, art collectors or fellow artists. I am thankful to those who have been interested in my work and willing to support and share my paintings through their various networks, on and off-line.

My contemporary paintings of Canada; the nature, landscapes, people, popular culture and sports icons, have found their way into art lovers hearts across the country and even worldwide. These paintings of Canada have been featured in Our Canada Magazine, CBC Arts, AllHabs Magazine, Curry’s Canada, Visual Overture, Art Avenue Magazine, and Galleries West Magazine, to name a few. This past week I was fortunate enough to add that New York staple for business and financial news, Forbes.com. Through contributor Jason T. Borbet, I found my work among many of my favorite artists in the Art Business pages of the popular New York staple of the Wall Street set. The feature story; Price Ranges And Studio Images Of 20 Contemporary Artists, the third installment of this popular feature on the Forbes website. I was happy to see one other Canadian artist in the group, the Toronto based artist, K.I.A. whose work involves slicing 2 and 3D shapes into linear component parts, with subsequent reinterpretations of the source material. One of my favorite pieces shows a totem pole like figure, titled ‘injunjetenjun’ which he describes as a “jet engine totem pole, or a Haida space shuttle. A blueprint of a jet engine, done in the manner of west-coast aboriginal art (Haida.)”

IN PRINT: Canadian artists from Vancouver Island featured in Salt Magazine

Originally published November 25, 2016

Paintings by Brandy Saturley featured in SALT Magazine Nov. 2016

It has been quite the journey this year, exploring Canada. From the most rural to the grandest; I am cultivating a visual language that is distinctly Canadian. Most recently I visited Toronto for the Art Toronto International Contemporary Art Fair, with stops in Montreal and Ottawa. Working as a full-time professional visual artist, on remote Vancouver Island, comes with it’s challenges as I have worked to establish myself nationally and internationally. My travels of this past year help to keep me connected to the national discussion about Canadian art, and through this I have extended my reach across the country. This brings me to a print magazine my work was included in recently. Salt Magazine Fall/Winter 2016 issue – A publication produced on Vancouver Island by Page One Publishing Inc., that promotes fine living and travel on Vancouver Island. Distributed in Alberta, Vancouver, and to subscribers across Canada. The feature, ‘Island Inspired’ written by editor Carolyn Camilleri, features three Vancouver Island artists, including my ‘Canadianisms’, whose work has gained exposure beyond the island market.  Full article here. Keep on exploring and creating; vive le Canada! and bravo Vancouver Island artists! ~ Brandy Saturley

‘The Getaway’ – More Our Canada Cover Feature

Originally published on June 29, 2017

Last year for Canada Day I was exploring beautiful Yellowknife and soaking up all this Northern City has to offer. This year I am paying it forward with an article I wrote for More Our Canada Magazine, ‘To Yellowknife, With Love’. I found out a few weeks ago that one of my paintings inspired by this trip would be featured on the cover of the July issue, ‘The Getaway’ features a sled dog, the houseboats on back bay and a canoe adventure I enjoyed while exploring. The painting encompasses all that I experienced and feel about the trip, it speaks to freedom and living an authentic life. read the article now
