From a very young age Andrea enjoyed experimenting with painting and drawing but her passion for art really grew when she began painting murals for her children's bedroom walls and creating artworks as an affordable alternative for Christmas and birthday presents. This is when she came to realise that it was something she wanted to continue and later would become her career.
Andrea's recent works are created using acrylic or oil paints and sometimes a combination of both. She is known for her stylised, detailed canvas paintings with a focus on animal subjects.
A reoccurring theme throughout Andrea's recent work is the placement of native or common New Zealand animals on retro chairs. This is a representation of Andrea's childhood, upbringing and life as a New Zealander.
