"Art is not what you see but what you make others see" Edgar Degas 1834-1917

I am Andria, I create and have artwork in private & public collections in the UK, Europe, America and New Zealand, and have exhibited in group & solo shows.

I am a continual learner and enjoy studying my arts interests, I hold a BA (Hons) in the Fine Arts, UK, and a strangely diverse range of other qualifications - Mental Health support work; Adult tutoring; Dance; Martial arts and Laughter Yoga.

I do undertake commissions, portraits, landscapes, animal portraits, illustrations for books, ebooks, DVDs and CDs ... also sculpture commissions.

My favourite quote for art: "Learn the rules before you break the rules ... but enjoy exploring the options" C.Derricott.
