At the moment my current painting, circular, 150cm, is raised just below chair level so that I can work from above, painting in from the edges, mainly water and fields. This is when the painting is most like a map and I will find signs and symbols to bring along the painting’s journey finding clarity and stillness with time

“Andrea’s work is heavily influenced by medieval maps which sometimes showed the material and the spiritual world as part of the same document. So Andrea records and maps personal journeys, both physical and psychic through extraordinarily detailed paintings.”

Routes are like plants; green, often with foliage springing, curling, stretching and turning from place to place.
