Custom paintings made for you
I commissioned this painting for a very nice couple from Amsterdam. They were very charmed by the Art Print Interface and their assignment was: 'We want a painting with Interface as a starting point, but then translated to our house, interior and the corresponding color palette.'
For a personal painting, we very deliberately chose Andrea. We had already seen beautiful and special works of art from her hand. Moreover, she is a nice and warm personality to work with. Inspired by natural elements such as sea, soil, fire and wood, the painting took shape.
In our search for a painting that suited us, we found a lot of inspiration but it was all just not there. We knew Andrea but didn't know her well enough as an artist. We were tipped off to go and talk to Andrea and in the conversations with Andrea we indicated what our wishes were, Andrea complemented that well.
When I was expecting my daughter and was already decorating the baby's room in my head, I knew that there had to be art by Mom. I love her work immensely so I was sure it would be exactly what I wanted. Even before I got pregnant, I knew Mom was toying with the idea of painting animals, but much more abstract than usual. This idea really appealed to me.
When I knew what colors the baby's room should be I passed it on immediately. I wanted a leopard in my daughter's room.
What appealed to us in Andrea's paintings is her figurative way of working, beautiful shapes and colors. When we wanted to have a painting made in that style, we could indicate from the beginning what we wanted with the colors, the division of the surface and which elements we wanted to have incorporated in the painting.
