About me

Hi, I'm Andrea. My day job is commercial interior design, but painting is my creative outlet in my free time. I've been an artist at heart for as long as I can remember.

Realism has always been my first love. I tend to look at a scene or object and wonder how accurately I could reproduce it with paint. Working mostly in black and white, I like to bring attention to one element with a bright color.

I started painting the MascTots series in 2013, when one of my best friends was about to have her first baby. I painted a simple, color block owl for her little boy. Not long after, my sister asked if I would paint something similar for her friend. Then another...and the MascTots were born. Everyone seems to have an animal they connect with and I love seeing the delight these characters bring out in both kids and adults.
