Hi I’m Andrea, welcome to my website. A brief introduction...I’m a professional pastel artist and have been teaching, demonstrating and doing commissions for people for the past 16 years. I’ve had no official training so I’m largely self taught...having a go, making mistakes and learning from others has been my recipe for successful portraits! My practiced medium and style is realism in pastel but recently I am enjoying experimenting with a more looser style in acrylic. It’s quite daunting changing medium and style after so many years but I’m rather getting a taste for it...watch this space as the saying goes!
