Biography

Andrea Farmer is a contemporary fine artist from Chelmsford, Essex, England. She specialises in abstract land art and tends to exhibit her work mainly in Essex and London. Private and corporate commissions considered.

Art college trained, Andrea proceeded to gain valuable experience in the creative universe, working as an illustrator, typesetter, graphic designer and print manager. During this time, she continued to experiment with painting and other crafts.

In the early noughties, an involvement with a London art gallery alongside a preference to work to her own methods set Andrea on a new journey. The creation of abstract landscape paintings using oil and mixed media. Over time, these paintings evolved into a collection of artworks entitled "ethereal landscape paintings". Created to lift the spirit and soothe the soul. Inspired by Andrea's love of colour and the landscape. 

The ethereal landscape paintings focus on rural and coastal landscapes. In particular, the way light across the land creates abstract patterns, reflections and movement, causing changes to perceived colour vision. These paintings have an energising and glowing effect with opulent colours, tactile textures and evocative forms that melt into one another, creating a meditative ethereal atmosphere.
