Meet the Artist
Andrea loves patterns and colours in nature, textiles and art. Working with glass and with polymer clay, allows her to create jewellery, functional and decorative pieces in a wonderful array of colours and patterns. Andrea is largely self taught and she continues to develop her skills and knowledge through trial and error along with the help and generosity of spirit of other artists.
Art is Andrea’s soul food. It gives her the opportunity to create, relax, dream and explore. Andrea gets much joy making, giving away and selling her work and loves seeing pieces going to good homes.
In 2009 Andrea was awarded a Churchill Fellowship for 2009/10 in order to participate in some advanced kiln fired glass technique workshops and bring that knowledge back to the Northern Territory to benefit the community.
In 2016, Andrea relocated to Victoria after more than 30 years in the Northern Territory where she was a founding member of the Darwin Art Trail.
"Andrea lives her art. She wears it, eats from it, hangs it on the wall... It colours her life as the blue sky colours the day. It shines from her as the Moon on a darkened sea." - Tom Dinning.
