Andrea Pottyondy

Location: Canada

Art is everywhere in my life. I am an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists, the initiator of Artspa (art group), docent at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, and an artist who sees the potential in common bits and pieces of everyday life.
Born and raised in Quebec, I also lived in Yukon Territory from 1984-88 and presently reside with my family in beautiful Nova Scotia, Canada. Mostly self-taught, I have studied art with the University of Southern California, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and with professional artists in Canada and abroad.
My love of the environment, history and travel are exhibited in the abstract layered landscapes and colourful, textured florals and narratives that I create. I use water based mediums, acrylics, oils, crayons, ink, handmade papers, printmaking, recycled/found objects and incorporate them in my art pieces or use them in application techniques.
My artwork has been purchased by the Nova Scotia Art Bank 2009,is featured in Nova Scotia’s Contemporary Artists Volume II 2010, International Women Celebrate, 100 Women Artists Reflect 2011, and hangs in private and corporate collections.
I have always wanted to share my passion for art and hope to bring a smile to the viewer’s lips, and even better, to stir some emotion deep within.

My Narratives

This is a series of mixed media artworks that I completed within days of returning from India. I did not take photos of the slums but the images were imprinted in my mind's eye.
