Art Philosophy / Who we are

Greetings! I am Andrea Brewer and I invite you to drop by my art studio in downtown Brevard--(upstairs, right above The Proper Pot on Main Street.) Studio is open to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am - 2pm and other times and days by appointment. Framed originals, glass paperweights(with tiny fiber scenes inside) and boxed notecards.

ARTIST STATEMENT

I seek to express the spirit of the painted landscape in fiber.

I am a native of North Carolina and a self taught fiber artist who developed a unique style
from years spent as a landscape watercolorist. My three-dimensional fiber landscapes make an uncommon departure from traditional two-dimensional painters. In the hybridization of watercolor painting and fiber manipulation, I find new ways to connect and resonate with my audience.

Each landscape instructs the next. The more I work, the more insight I gain into my hopes for
the next project and the more refined my technique becomes. I continually challenge myself to
improve my art through experimentation with alternative methods of working with plant and
animal fiber, such as finger-spinning cobweb silk into a fine thread, used to embroider trees in
my landscapes. I strive to make my work visually interesting.

Much of my work reflects the quiet. . . .the sleeping fox, the cautious rabbit, the watchful
chickadee, and the lumbering black bear. Wildlife and scenes of the Smoky Mountains for
many conjure images of vacation or an escape to nature. Through my art, I seek to engage
the viewer and bring him (her) away from the hectic through visions of woodland tranquility.
