Andrea Huelin is a painter who takes her inspiration from the often-overlooked stuff of everyday life. Using loose brushwork, Andrea creates oil paintings from quirky scenes and juxtaposed objects that have often presented themselves by accident. A former journalist, Andrea is interested in observing and recording what she sees, giving pause to fleeting moments and offering new ways to observe the ordinary. She has held solo exhibitions in Cairns and New South Wales, and has taken part in group shows around Australia and most recently, in Berlin with Michael Reid Gallery. She is a regular finalist in the EMSLA award for still life painting, and is included in the Commonwealth Government's Artbank collection. Huelin's portrait of Stanley Jones AO is on permanent display in the Cairns Supreme Court. View her artist CV here.
