Andrea Stajan-Ferkul:?Colour and I have had an intense relationship as far back as I can remember. It stimulates me. I remember wishing for the 24-pack of Laurentian brand pencil crayons; I only had the 20-pack. I don't have a single favourite colour - it is the potential of mixing paint and creating new colour combinations that can often be my inspiration, long before subject matter?. Andrea?s post-secondary studies began in Fashion Design, but she graduated from the Interpretive Illustration program at Sheridan College School of Art and Design. She studied painting under the renowned Canadian artist, Helen Lucas. Upon graduating, she spent several years working in the advertising industry as a fashion layout artist, creating ads for newspapers and magazines. It was a privileged, exciting and formative time - having received the invaluable mentorship by some of the top creative minds and fashion illustrators at the time. This exposure surely influenced and continues to be a source of inspiration in her style and subject matter. Years of Graphic Design further developed her style, as dedication to detail and strong composition, shaped the future of her work. Her work eventually became secondary during the many years of raising her family. This was a period of growth for her. Her vision broadened and she began to see things through her children?s' eyes, as well as her own. She re-immersed myself into painting and illustrating - the fine arts instead of the commercial. She experimented with textures and mixed mediums to create dimension, as backgrounds became an integral part of each painting. Her choice of medium is acrylic, often-incorporating graphite, prisma and mixed media. Her influences are many and varied - often depicting her love for fashion. Strongly aware, and moved to express stylistic trends, she also enjoys textile studies, interpretive room settings and impressionistic florals or landscapes. Her paintings seem to jump from one subject matter to another, depending on what she?s feeling, and what inspirational material life offers her that day. All of Laila's products are made in Canada. This light weight art piece is printed on canvas and wrapped on a two inch wooden stretcher bar. Not only does it come ready to hang, it is also gicleed for extra gloss and protection. This canvas wrap will look fantastic in any room of your home or office!
