Andrea has been showing her artwork on the Cape for about 25 years. She was always very artistic but in the early 80’s decided to concentrate on her watercolors full-time. She lives in Falmouth with her husband Frank and little JRT Sammi.
She is a self-taught artist and has established her own style over the years. “Each painting is a new adventure for me and its completion, another learned experience in my world of painting.” Andrea loves painting her florals. It is difficult to try to capture nature but Andrea feels she’s up for the challenge. “When I paint, I lose all track of time and in that world of painting I try to capture what is in my mind and record it on paper. Many attempts go by the way but also among those attempts are some creations that I show.”
Andrea is most known for her “Circle of Lights” painting of the lighthouses of the Cape and Islands. It is her “Claim to Fame” that we all strive for. “It was really a request from my customers. When I finished it, I was very pleased but never expected how popular it would become.”
