"I am intrigued by the play of light and colour in any subject. In a world which is getting faster and bigger, I like to focus my art on the small things in life." Doris Brand
Doris Brand was born in Speyer, Germany in 1965. She emigrated from Germany to South Africa in 1985, originally moving to Somerset West and Swellendam, before finally settling in the beautiful town of George, in the Garden Route.
Doris is married to Leander Brand, with whom she started Cape Palette Art Gallery, in 2002, in George. As well as being a professional artist, she teaches painting classes to adults at her own gallery. Doris’s preferred medium is oil paint, but on occasion she enjoys to experiment with other mediums in her work. She loves painting personal subjects, and draws her inspiration from her immediate surroundings and subjective experiences. Doris Brand’s still life paintings seek to capture the texture and light of ordinary subjects and transform them into extraordinary art. Since 2000, has also participated in numerous exhibitions at various galleries and festivals.
She is currently exhibiting at various galleries in the Western Cape, as well as teaching painting and drawing at Cape Palette Artist Studio.
