Collection: ABOUT Andree


Andree is experiencing a wave of inspiration making sculptures again. After a long period of making jewelry, she put it aside and returned to building larger pieces. The sculptures are organic, and abstract, influenced by forms she might find in the woods, like nuts, leaves, or branches. At the ocean she is enthralled by the rocks, shells, seaweed, or drift wood. Her goal is to define their character, and hear their voice. Currently she is working on a leaf collection, cast in bronze or porcelain, and plans to start enlarging the pieces to three feet this year.

Her initial art training was with a NYC abstract expressionist painter, Vita Petersen. Petersen was hands on, never allowing a painting to be complete until every corner was explored. Upon graduation from Spence School, Petersen granted Andree the Spence Artists Award and sent her off to RISD to further her education.

RISD was one of the most life changing and happiest times of her life as an artist, a virtual candy store of possibilities. She explored metal, wax, glass, hollow-ware, plaster, clay, textiles, and paper. Armed with vision and the right tools, her creativity blossomed under the instruction of some of the finest art professors in the field, with lectures by artists like Claes Oldenburg along with the inspiration of fellow art students. Free time was spent under the Providence railroad tracks to scavenge iron and wood train parts for sculptures. The RISD pub was the hang where students would drink beer and eat peanuts for sustenance, while David Byrne and Tina Weymouth rocked in the background. These were pulsating times with few rules except to produce artwork in any possible way.
