A little bit about me....

Hello art loving friends! Thank you for visiting my Etsy shop. My name is Andrea Lavery, I consider myself a contemporary impressionist with a touch of whimsy. I love to portray nature and my surroundings as I see them, which is sometimes a little twisted. My intention is not to create a realistic representation of a particular animal or subject but to create an original piece of art that will make you smile. For now, most of my work is small format. My focus is all about color and the texture created by the brushstrokes. I squeeze as much as I can into these little paintings. Enjoy browsing my little world.😊


My life in a nutshell.

I live and paint by the shoreline in West Haven, Connecticut. I am fifty five years old, I have a husband of twenty six years and two great kids. I spent most of my childhood outdoors surrounded by nature growing up in rural Newtown, Connecticut. I started drawing at a very young age and spent many hours exploring my surroundings and capturing it on paper. I decided early on in high school that I wanted to be an artist. I was very fortunate to have parents that fully believed and encouraged me to follow my dreams. I graduated from Paier College of Art in 1985 with a bachelor of fine art degree in illustration. From there I worked in the graphics field as an art director, designer, and freelance comp artist for the next fifteen or so years. I took time off to be home with my babies until they were both in school full time. My career path took a little detour but I always had a plan in mind to get back to creating art. In 2012 I got out my brushes and dove in. I was able to squeeze in a few hours a week to paint then began selling my work. I’ll never forget the first time I heard the ‘cha-ching’ sound on my phone when I made a sale. The thrill of someone loving my art enough to purchase never gets old. I am grateful to all my collectors around the world. I have a wonderful following on Instagram-@alaveryart, Pinterest, and here on Etsy which has helped me get my art out to people and places I never thought possible. It’s exciting and so gratifying.

Thank you for taking the time to read and learn a little about me and my art.
Much love ❤️
