Andrea is a Canadian landscape painter who lives in Muskoka on Skeleton Lake. She holds a Fine Art degree from the University of Guelph, majoring in Fine Arts that focused on
printmaking, drawing, and painting, and has many years drawing and painting experience.
She has spent the last 8 years focusing on oil landscapes depicting the Muskoka and
Algonquin wilderness. Her medium of choice is traditional oil though she has many years
experience with the pastel medium. Her paintings are colourful impressions of shorelines,
water, rocks and trees and deal mainly with the visual structure of the Canadian landscape
and the intrigue of shape, colour and effects of light. Andrea’s paintings possess a sense of energy in gesture, striking colour, light and mood; they entice the viewer to share a strong connection to the Canadian landscape and people. Continuous studio and open-air painting allow her to keep up with her show and commission demands. Andrea taught art for many years in Ottawa and now paints full time to keep up with demand for her artwork. When not involved with painting Andrea spends time with her husband and family and enjoys skiing, sailing, hiking and canoeing.
