Rhandi Sandford of Colour Me Weird is an illustrator and textile designer, from southern AB.
Her artwork is inspired by horticulture, mycology, and mythology. Intertwining all three to create a surreal narrative. Rhandi has been creating from a young age, and is self taught. Her initial media exploration was charcoal, watercolour and ink. These days gouache, acrylic, and soft sculpture suit her fancy.
Her work has been shown around western Canada. Rhandi has also shown her work through the festival circuit including Shambhala Music Festival, Artswells, Tiny Lights, Kaslo Jazz Festival and Kamp Festival, and she has recently delved into stage design.
Colour Me Weird was built with ethical fashion in mind and Rhandi’s desire to make her illustrations more accessible. Colour Me Weird has created a small intimates line using bamboo cotton, and making everything to order to reduce waste. One of a kind pieces are built using upcycled fabrics wherever possible. She uses her art in prints to keep the pieces whimsical and fun.
