All about Andrea

Multi Award Winning Artist

 

Many of Andrea's artworks have been sold throughout Australia, USA and Europe; to her private collectors and ArtLoversAustralia & Bluethumb.

After leaving school Andrea attended 5 years learning & studying art and design through College and University. Over the years she has also painted many murals in restaurants, kids bedroom, curated and designed artworks to decorate office spaces in Sydney and Melbourne and has had 8 paintings published in International magazines. 

Andrea sees inspiration all around her and her creative list is always expanding. But most of her artworks are centred around of her love and appreciation for nature, birds, insects, animals and plants. 

With nature she’s instantly drawn into the colours, textures and patterns. She then paints it as she envisage it through abstracts.

With birds, insects, animals, plants and the occasional landscape she applies traditional fine art, carefully measuring and mapping out the artwork to make sure the perspective and ratios are correct. Mixing colours to match and understanding the direction of the light.

 

Andrea also creates figurative surreal artworks where her vision is to connect humanity more with nature in one artwork. Here she starts with a mood board and plays around with colour combinations before mapping it out and creating it on canvas. “I see beauty all around me in nature and understand there is a purpose to every living organism. The human connection, care and respect for these is vital to the survival of mankind.”

 

Andrea is open to commissions. If you have an idea for your home or office, or you can peruse through her art gallery and if you see something that you love, but need to change the size or colour, then please do contact her. She's painted many commissioned artworks over the years.

"I truly hope that my artwork appeals and that you love it enough to want to view it on your own wall everyday. When I am painting it really doesn’t matter what the subject is, what really matters is with each brush stroke, that is when I have the most serene moments in life.” - Andrea.
