Heading 1

I’m talking a few days off to spend time

Hi, I'm Andrea!

I believe that everyone's creative and that art has the power to transform people's lives and help heal the Earth. I'm passionate about creating opportunities for people to connect to nature and themselves through art.

I've been working in the environmental field for over twenty years in a variety of roles in the public, private and non-profit sectors. I have a Masters in Environmental Studies from York University and 

for the past 12 years I've been working as an artist and entrepreneur in Alberta. 

 

I was lucky to grow up surrounded by people who made beautiful 

things and they encouraged me to make things too. As a child I spent a lot of time outdoors and exploring different art forms. I'm inspired by the changing seasons and the colours and textures of the natural world. When I'm not wandering around the forest with my family, you can find me teaching art classes or making jewelry and mixed media art in my studio.

My art is sold at the Leighton Art Centre Gallery Shop, at various art markets and festivals across Canada and through my online shop.

Thanks for being here. I hope you find something that inspires you. 

Andrea
