Rochelle Andrews has been painting full time since gradulating from an Illustration Degree in 1996. Creative Arts has long run in her family as Andrew’s great, great Uncle James Brown was NZ’s first real political cartoonist from 1852 and her passion for painting was largely influenced by her Father with his own talent for oil painting and Aviation Art.
“Rochelle creates ’larger than life’ flower paintings accentuating the beauty of flowers in close-up. Her work never fails to capture the colour and depth of her subject matter, sometimes bold, sometimes delicate and always beautiful. These calm and thought-provoking canvases are a delight and the talent that she shows capturing her subject is quite extraordinary. -Linda Sell, Gallery Director, Pond Gallery, London Andrews has undertaken many commissioned pieces and her work can be found in collections within the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Germany, Japan and Singapore.
