Welcome to my gallery! Here you will find my collections that I hope will inspire and connect with you.
If you are looking for a statement piece, you have come to the right place. There is something to be said for the simplicity of one large artwork on a wall and I am happy to work with you to fit your sizing and colour requirements.
All my artworks are painted by myself and are original. I don't reproduce the same original, but if there is something you like I can paint something similar for you.
Quality is very important to me, so whether it is an original painting or a giclee print, all are printed off-site by an expert who understands colour management and who uses museum grade inks, and acid-free, high quality papers and canvases that will last and stay true for years to come.
I also have work showing in various exhibitions, so check out what I'm up to.
Thank you for visiting my on-line gallery. Andrea

My name is Andrea and I am an artist living in New Zealand.
Creating artwork is as important to me as the air that I breathe. It is the language I use to tell my story, to celebrate nature, and to raise awareness of environmental issues.
I have a varied approach to my work. I love many styles and mediums and my messages are more important than using the same approach to my work. From stylised realism to illustration, I love it all!
Some of my paintings are based on what I see in the natural environment, and some are from my imagination. My environmental paintings address our relationship to climate change, pollution, and corporate greed, and are informed by media and scientific articles and reports. I combine humor and irony with liberal doses of absurdism to amuse and challenge viewers to have cultural conversations on our impact on the environment.
I also love to celebrate nature, and I get a great deal of pleasure from painting nature in all forms. Colour plays a powerful role in my work, and I use both analogous and complementary colours as a means of expression. My aim is to create artworks that uplift viewers and express freedom, hope, and joy.
My artworks are exhibited in galleries and shows around New Zealand and also internationally through Saatchi Art in the USA, Singulart Gallery in Paris, and through exhibitions with The Healing Power of ART & ARTISTS organization and Manhattan Arts International in New York.
I am proudly a member of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Art, For Mother Nature, the Ocean Artist Society in California, an Artist Showcase Gallery member of Manhattan Arts International, and I am a Friend of The Healing Power of ART & ARTISTS organisation.
Three exhibitions I am particularly proud of include exhibiting work in The Garzoni Challenge, curated by the Uffizi Gallery in Italy; exhibiting in The Healing Power of Art in Honour of Nature in New York, and being a finalist in the Wellington Regional Arts Review. News about upcoming exhibitions can be viewed on my Exhibitions page.
I support a number of causes, donating money from my full-time job as well as from many of my artworks. Click on my original artworks to see which causes my artwork assists.
As an environmental artist, my aim is to work in harmony with the natural environment as much as I can. I only use good quality materials, as good brushes can be used repetitively whereas cheap brushes are generally thrown out after a few uses. I use thick canvases and papers, and museum-grade paints - as these last anywhere from 75 – 200 years which is more sustainable than using thin canvases and prints that disintegrate or fade after a short time, and are designed to be thrown out. I also use Schmincke medium gel with my oil paints as it allows me to wash out my brushes in water. In this throw-away society, I think it is important that our choices are sustainable both in how we work and what we purchase.
If you are interested in purchasing an artwork, you can do this directly through my website, or you can find my work in a number of galleries.
