Our goal: demystify the process of owning original art, giving buyers of any background access to a curated selection of Canadian artworks – all online.
ArtMatch is selective about artists we represent and works we showcase, as we prefer a curated gallery experience and do not want to overwhelm.
Our collection is exclusively original works.
We represent Canadian artists, each with a unique offering. This means our gallery is not a singular style or theme. It’s a diverse collection, and we believe each artist to be outstanding in their genre.
As an online gallery we are able to charge a lower commission than physical ones, meaning the artists keeps more revenue from sales.
Our prices are transparent and consistent, and we work closely with each of our artists to ensure fairness and a mutually beneficial relationship.
Purchasing original art is a big decision which doesn’t need to happen overnight.
Before a purchase, we highly encourage taking advantage of our complementary services: digital mock-ups to visualize the art in your space, and professional art consultations with Vandy, an experienced interior designer and artist.
If you love a certain artist’s style but can’t find the right piece, we are happy to arrange custom commisions.
We can arrange for third-party framing and hanging as required. After the art is delivered to you, we offer a 7-day return window to make sure it’s a perfect fit.
Meet the Team
With professional experience as an artist and an interior designer, Vandy recognizes that despite a plethora of talented Canadian artists and people having a genuine interest in their arts community, far too many Canadian spaces lack original art.
The problem is one of accessibility: those interested in owning original do not know where to begin, and feel priced out or excluded from the art world, while many artists are focused on their craft and lack time and resources to market themselves.
Vandy thus founded ArtMatch, a Canadian online gallery and original art marketplace focused on quality, variety, transparency, and accessibility
Vandy has worked with hundreds of clients – residential & commercial – to find art for their spaces. Her goal is simple: making Canadian spaces more beautiful, open, and creative, one artwork at a time.

“As a full time artist who travels a lot and is often out of town, ArtMatch has been a life saver for me. Vandy’s commission is incredibly fair to the artist unlike many galleries and designers. The business model allows artists to support themselves and gives clients access to affordable artworks. I encourage any artist making a living from art to work with ArtMatch.”
