About

Hi! I'm Andrea 

I'm  a mixed media artist and jewellery designer living with my family in Calgary, Alberta. Originally from Montreal, I find myself inspired equally by wild places and urban environments. I see beauty in trees and gritty industrial buildings. I am drawn to the mountains and back alleys. I enjoy the quiet solitude of my garden as much as attending music festivals. 

 

I believe that art has the power to transform people's lives and deepen our connection to the earth.  For over 25 years I've been involved in social and environmental justice work and my art is part of my journey and reflects my love for all beings. 

Bow River Jewellery is named after the beautiful clear turquoise water that flows from the Bow Glacier in Banff National Park through Calgary. I've spent the past 15 years getting to know this river and the plants that live along her banks. Most of the wood, seeds and bark used in my jewellery come from the Bow River Valley and is sustainably harvested in harmony with the seasons. You will find willow and pine beaded necklaces, caragana rings and birch bark earrings as well as pieces made from black walnut to honour where I come from. 

 

My Bow River Jewellery collection is sold through my online shop, The Leighton Art Centre Gallery Shop and various art markets and festivals across Canada.

 

My mixed media art can be purchased through my online shop.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you find something that you love.
