“Andrea has been painting many years and discovered she has a knack for doing pet portraits.”-Boston Globe Feb 10, 2002

Artist Statement


Whether it be a pet portrait,landscape or still life my observations are captured by responding to color, brush marks on the canvas,building the surface, and working intuitively. Trusting the process in hopes that my individuality, quirkiness and whimsey come through in the art work.
