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.

Christmas through my Eyes…..

Every year I spend November spreading all kind of pretty in the form of Christmas decorating for clients.

When it comes time to do my own decorating I always worry I will never have enough of the pretty left inside me…. but then I put my music on of all my favourite Holiday singers like Nat, Bing, Dean & Clooney.

I then light my scented candles and I think of my Mom who always sang in her beautiful voice while decorating our house, it was always breathtaking……and I push on, and her creativity and I become one and the magic begins. I am still working on it but here are a few pictures of what has happened so far…enjoy

The Home-Coming

 

The Home-Coming
A porch, a hall, a stairway, significant may be; I'm thinking what a rubicon your evening door, for me. On one side yearning, waiting, a thousand vague alarms, Tormenting worries women know; the other side your arms!


-Ruby Archer (Little Poems, pub.1900.)

From home to home, and heart to heart, from one place to another
The warmth and joy of Christmas, brings us closer to each other.
