Andrea Huelin is a painter who takes her inspiration from the often-overlooked stuff of everyday life. Using loose brushwork, Andrea creates unlikely oil paintings from quirky scenes and juxtaposed objects that have presented themselves by accident. A former journalist, Andrea is interesting in observing and recording what she sees, giving pause to fleeting moments and offering new ways to observe the ordinary. She has held a number of solo exhibitions and has taken part in group shows in Cairns, Brisbane and Melbourne.  Her portrait of Stanley Jones AO is on permanent display in the Cairns Supreme Court.  Andrea is a member of the National Association of Professional Portrait Artists.  View artist CV here.

Andrea regularly holds painting workshops for beginners to more experienced artists.  She has a Bachelor of Arts from Curtin University and a Cert IV in Training and Assessment.  Contact Andrea for more information.
