A painting is an artwork created using colors on a ground surface such as paper or canvas. The colors can be in a wet form such as paints. You can also use a dry form like pastels to create your painting.
Illustration is a principle practice that begins most of my work, but I experiment with many mediums depending on what forms and concepts I express. I have created a wide range of works.
Even work on small paintings can take days, (working little by little), I notice myself feeling almost afraid as I begin, but then, once the pristine canvas is tackled, it’s full steam ahead.
My artistic vision is influenced by the wild natural landscape of the eastern shore of Nova Scotia.
The diverse range in my artistic style, my drive and yearning for new techniques, experimentation, and self-challenge leaves every artwork a special and unique piece to connect with.
Art is my Truth, Art is a Healer, Art Makes Us Human
That’s the motto that Andrea lives by when creating works of art. She’s an artist who sees potential in common bits and pieces of everyday life, transforming ephemera and found objects into a new narrative.
My first love in art making has always been landscape and still life. While I visited Nova Scotia frequently over the years, I moved to Guysborough permanently in 2018.
