I've commissioned several paintings from Sandy and have always been delighted with the results. The most recent was 2 paintings of our cats for my husband's birthday. Sandy was great to work with and we had a lot of fun planning the project. Highly recommended !!

Hi Sandy, I am checking out your prints. I have been doing some gelli plate monoprints and was looking at yours for inspiration. I love your colours and positioning of your subjects. Happy print making! I love your abstracts for their vibrant ice colours.

Just had a peek at you new, abstract works, Sandy. Your paintbrush leaves vigorous, mysterious tracks! Very provocative and wonderous and some even a little spooky. Favourites so far are 'Round About' and 'Ole'.

My family and I visited the Beaverlodge Cultural Centre yesterday. I enjoyed seeing the paintings you have on exhibit there right now, love the vibrant colours and slightly "stained glass" style of them.

Sandy!! I thought your paintings were outstanding. You've developed a unique and very appealing style. You deserve this status upgrade and you certainly had my vote.....although during voting we did not know the identity of the painters submitting. What a pleasure to see your name. I just had to say "Congratulations!" Roberta Combs 😊

You mentioned that you had uploaded a couple of new paintings to this website so I had a peek this morning. Great fun to have seen these paintings evolve into the beauties they have become. They certainly capture the mystic essence of the Canadian boreal forests. The marvellous perspective and use colour express your voice so effectively, Sandy. Miep

Sandy you are a breathe of fresh air. I am an artist also and have been in a slump for a few years. My work becoming mundane and boring. You have renewed my creative juices and I hope to bring back a bit of what I've lost. Thank you and good luck with everything you do.

Saw your work in this issue of Southwest Art. I checked out your page and I love your style. I do scratchboard work, I am not a painter. I love your fall pictures.

An impressive and joy-filled portfolio you have created! We have witnessed your journey across the years that you devoted your time to creating these colourful and varied representations of the places you live and visit. The significant number of accumulated works became evident when we navigated your website over several cups of coffee this morning. A truly marvellous collection, Rudy exclaimed that your work could justiffiably hang alongside that of The Group of Seven,

I am spending a quiet winter afternoon at home looking at your website Sandy. What an inspiration you are. Not only are you prolific, profound, and particular, in your art work but you are constantly learning and searching for the next way of portraying what you want to say. Ever the student, ever the teacher, for all your artist friends providing us with a constant source of insight and inspiration. Thank you for being YOU and helping us be us.

Hi Sandy! Your paintings are a beautiful expression of the North. I lived up in Peace River and High Level, Alberta for many years and your work really captures the essence & colours of life up there. Now when I need a "northern" fix, I'll visit your website. Happy painting! :)

Mrs. Troudt, your work is simply beautiful and amazing. A true reflection of who you are. I am so happy I came across your site and stumbled across your interview on Vimeo. Seeing your face and hearing your voice after all of these years made my day :)
Pia Cimini - 20 Apr 2014
So beautiful! Great to see your artwork! We hope you'll come north for a visit one day!

Wow, Sandy, Last I knew you were doing willow furniture, I had no idea you were so artistic and talented in so many different media. So glad to find your web site.
Bobbie Johnson - 15 Sep 2013
Wow! Need I say more?

Your website is so awesome! Your work is exceptional and beautiful. Each painting is so full of color and simplicity, and I enjoyed looking at each one of them. I immediately recognized Den's portrait and it gave me a smile! He is still the good looking guy I remember 50 years ago, and age has only made him look better! Good luck to you!

Gorgeous website, Sandy!

So excited to see your Website, Sandy. Although I prefer to see your work first hand, this is a wonderful way to share. My new favourite is "Boats for Rent".

Beautiful work Sandy. You really enjoy what you do and your work reflects this.

I am so impressed. There is so much I need to learn. This is a great website. Can't wait to see more. Love the colors and subject matter. Especially Den :) The prints are awesome. I sent this on to Paige and John Troudt.

I love the liveliness of your work. The style captures the beauty of your subjects in a unique and refreshing way that is a pleasure. Vivid color and abstract strokes announce a riot of life and exuberance. This website is so much fun.
