Original Artwork by Andrea Robinson
Hi everyone, please note that I will be away from my studio from 17 June to 30 July 2020 and won't be contactable until August. Thanks for your understanding. Kind regards, Andrea
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.
Quality is very important to me, so whether it is an original painting or a giclee print, all are produced using acid free and high quality papers, canvases and inks that will last and stay true for years to come.
Thank you for visiting my on-line gallery. Andrea

I am also thrilled to share that my artwork "Mad World" has received an Award of Excellence in the Manhattan Arts International "Healing Power of Art 2020" exhibition.
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.
Giclee prints are reproductions of my original paintings. All are printed off-site by an expert who understand colour management and who uses museum grade inks, and high quality papers, and canvases.
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 genres 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 artworks are based on what I see in the natural environment, and some are from my imagination – this way I can create worlds of beauty and activism, which I hope will create cultural conversations around our environment. I love celebrating nature, so I also paint our natural environment to inspire uplift viewers and give a feeling of hope and joy.
I support a number of causes to help nature and our environment. I donate money from my full time job as well as from some of my artworks. Click on my original artworks to see which groups my money 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. I’m still looking for a solution to bubble wrap for packaging, so let me know if you have a better option.
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.
Thank you for supporting me!
