Andrea Stajan Ferkul

 

It all started with a 20 pack of Laurentian brand pencil crayons when Andrea was a little girl, and from there a star was born…

Her studies began in Fashion Design but in the end Andrea graduated from the Interpretive Illustration program at Sheridan College School of Art and Design where she studied painting under the renowned Canadian artist, Helen Lucas.

After graduation Andrea worked in the advertising industry as a fashion layout artist, creating ads for newspapers and magazines.This exposure to fashion design has surely influenced her art  and a source of inspiration subject matter.

Andrea says she paints in many layers, repeating the process of adding and subtracting as the work progresses.  While not exclusive to fashion, it is a recurring theme in my subject matter.

Her work inspires me, the flow and movement in her paintings along with the subtle use of her colour choices always makes me want to design a room around each painting. Here are a few pieces of her work that I truly love.
