About Little Earth Art Studio

Little Earth Art Studio was named and inspired after my daughter. As a young single mother my daughter was my "Little Earth". I established my art studio right out of art school in early 2000. At first I followed my training in ceramics and sculpture. In 2010 I opened a public art studio to share my space, my equipment and training with the local community, specializing in youth instruction. I learned more from my students than I ever expected. My students of all ages inspired me push the boundaries and explore further, away from the well known. They taught me risk is good and possibilities are endless. My students inspired me to reverse my role as teacher back to student. I decided to switch my focus from my teaching studio to developing new bodies of work. I return to develop my own artistic voice, this time through painting and the beyond. I try never to limit myself I embrace the uncertainty and the fear sometimes reluctantly. I seek bold options, pushing the relationship with color and shape, taking risks all along the way leaving the comfort zone far behind. I now travel with my artwork showing in galleries, art shows and mobile galleries. My newest adventure involves designing and building art in public places.

A New Process

My new process focuses on the relationship between color and reflective light. This has inspired me to to find new way of viewing the world blurring the lines between art and nature. Embracing this new role as a colorist and painter my work allows me great possibilities. My contemporary oil paintings bring a bold new depth of color and texture. My mixed Media paintings bring spontaneity and whimsy and an unexpected parallel to the natural world both on a macro and micro level. My experimental technique is limitless and every new medium brings challenges and wonder in each creation. Every painting is completely unique with depth and flavor, the eye is endlessly entertained. Many people observe the similar visual qualities of stone or earth, pointing out parallels to satellite pictures of the earth or from space. Everybody sees something different and I enjoy the feedback I get from different individuals about what they see and how the artwork makes them feel. It is my pleasure when someone experiences joy from viewing my work.

Two Distinct Styles

Creating two vastly different contemporary bodies of work suits my need for constant exploration and challenge .Painting with oil is unhurried, more methodical, and forgiving to change and evolution, layers and time. I can revisit an oil painting for weeks or often months in order to develop, and enhance the piece before I feel it is complete. My multi-media paintings take a very different approach and result in a very different style. Painting with multiple mediums is more spontaneous; while I have a great amount of control these special materials I have many challenges to face during each creation, which awakens my raw instinct. Both of these techniques bring me great challenge and joy.

Change is the only consent

My studio is constantly evolving I work not only as a sculptor painter and multi media artist, but as a designer and conceptualist as well. I celebrate the movement and the beautiful elegance of the natural, colorful, and ever transforming world and and all its fleeting moments. I feel my artwork is a reflection of my life’s experience. I look forward to every opportunity to grow and learn though my creative process.

Testimonials

"In December of 2019 my wife and bought a pre construction condo. January 25th 2020 just a short while before the pandemic actually hit we went to an art show in downtown Boca Raton. We weren't looking for anything specific but we spotted Andrea's work and immediately fell in love with the look and feel. I told Andrea at that time that it would be a while but we wanted her art in our new condo. We kept in touch during the balance of the year . After hiring a designer my wife and I agreed that we would commission her to do several panels that would serve as the centerpiece to the design/color of our new home . Our designer agreed and worked with us to collaborate with Andrea and we went to work on the specific colors, sizes, and and design. These were just delivered last week and she hit the ball out of the park . JUST REALLY GORGEOUS. Andrea is not only a great artist with a real sense of design but a really nice person too who listened to our dreams/wishes and made them a reality. I HIGHLY recommend her for all the skills she possesses ."

"Dear Andrea,
I wanted you to know how much we love the custom artwork you designed for us. The whole process was incredibly delightful-and I appreciated your communication and personal service. It was terrific that you came out and helped us decide how to hang the picture to accentuate the design.
Every time I walk past your creation, I smile!
Thank you,"
