It is definitely one of my most exciting projects and I am happy to share … Read More
In Between Storms, a new large oil painting by Andrea was inspired during the painting of the Six Stages of Faith. It was a transition period and it coincided with a real storm, almost hurricane, that was forming. The first rains and winds had passed and then the sun came out and we were waiting to see what would happen next. In this anticipation time, is when I got inspired and make my first sketch of it. More videos to come … Read More

I have had a total and complete REBIRTH and by that I mean that I was plucked out of what to me had been the demise of my existence. I underwent huge changes in my life, my status, my geographic location, my philosophy of life and most significantly, my purpose and it all is reflected in the NEW ART I developed these last two and a half years. Let alone that I went through an additional 5 year forced Sabbatical that … Read More
On October 20th, I celebrated the long awaited dream of opening my own gallery after 14 years wanting it. After one year, I found it best to close it. It all has been difficult here in Miami since I moved here, yet, I am happy as can be. I called it Bitterweet Gratitude because I was so grateful to God for allowing this gallery to open during a year where my two children were not with me, much to my … Read More

This is one of my most recent commissioned pieces of art using my new techniques of combining watercolor and my handmade paper as well as the pop out copperwired, paperwrapped elements as seen in the flower, leaves and wings. The beauty of this peice was in it’s creation as the client went along with me using her throw pillows as inspiration for a three piece floral series for her living room.

The LOVE and ABUNDANCE Series As I have been developing my new leaf technique, I thought, “How cool to make leaves out of foreign currency and make International money trees!” It wasn’t exactly manifesting until I took a good look at the concept of my idea and reflected on what my real intention was behind it. I thought more and more about it and I have come to the conclusion that what I really wanted to do was open this … Read More
Ellaborating on the new theme “Alive in Paradise,” I have taken the design of trees to a new level, a level where the trees come to life. I have sculpted copper wire leaves, wrapped them in handmade paper and inserted them over some ground collage work and into the art for for stability. Then I texture them and blend them so the connection flows. Very exciting!
Sculpted Handmade Paper Flowers Collaging for 20 years still continues to be fun but making some of the elements come alive by sculpting them is even more fun and very exciting. Here I have formed copper wire modules, such as petals, in this case, wrapped them in handmade paper and inserted them through the picture for added security. These are then textured in my usual didactic way. This manual labor is what I bring to you in this photo. … Read More
LOVE GETS AROUND This video, LOVE GETS AROUND, represents Andrea’s YouTube video, demonstrating what Painting Your Heart Out is all about…setting an intention from the heart and expressing it through painting. Feeling something is one thing but putting it into some sort of art format gives it a life or a release of a special nature, much like writing a song or poem. Andrea has designed other workshops around this project and are available in her Studio.
