Rand has been a landscape photographer for several decades, an
interest driven to a large degree by his professional background in
geological research, field work, and university teaching. However
over the past 10 years or so he has become much more interested
in interpreting the rhythm and light of landscape through art.
Rand works primarily with watercolour or acrylic, but also include some experimentation with pen & ink, pastel, and block printing.
His paintings have been primarily gifted, donated, and sold in support of various agencies, which provide social support services
within the Greater Victoria community.
Since joining the Victoria Sketch Club Rand has served as Summer Program Coordinator, Secretary, Vice-President, and
currently President (2015/16). He is also involved with other art organizations, including the Oak Bay Art Club, where he
arranged numerous guest artist programs.
