Are you ready Tobermory?

It's true! I have unpacked my bags for the summer. I'm excited to announce that I will be working with Wet Rock Studios and Art Gallery this summer in Tobermory, Ontario.

As featured artist, I am opening my studio to the public. I will be working out of the gallery to bring you a unique collection of Tobermory inspired trees with of course my unique iconic sentiment and style.

Next time you are headed north on the Bruce Peninsula, make sure you come in and see our incredible display of local fine artists. We are a stop on the drive as well as the destination!

Create everyday

For Katie
Home decor, tree art by Andrea Currie

I create from a place that is sacred to me and in doing so, the piece that grows becomes special to you. My art is my self-care; my creativity is the same freeing and uplifting voice you have in you. I encourage you to listen to your own voice and create something, you will be surprised what comes out!

unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping

A little bit of me

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyLThSrxpUI

On May 1, 2014, I produced a mixed media exhibit at a private residence in Cardiff, CA. Under my PomonaLIFE house we celebrated art in all it's forms with a local chef, winery and musician. 


This little blurb was edited from my promo materials but I thought I would post it anyway to give a voice to my unique art style. 


For more info and to find out where the next PomonaLIFE tree art exhibit party will be please email andrea@pomonalife.com or visit my website www.acurrie.com to learn more about my tree art.

Thank you for sharing tree art love!

Creativity is intrinsic. 
The space between our controlled thoughts is the release of WHY we create.
Let go and find your WHY.
Your HOW is what makes you happy, 
when you add your WHY your art becomes not only unique, but healing.

What do you see?

Perception is a conscious act. 
-Deepak Chopra


The Skins of Trees Have an Inside Voice

My path as an artist has been influenced by different careers, professional interests and personal struggles. The purpose of my art is to express and document the various stages in my life applying my unique style  I am a tree artist. My art depicts the spiral of how we live and grow in a constant flux of revisiting, revising and renewing ourselves. Like trees, we build on these layers as cycles in our individual growth, making us taller, fuller and wiser. 

My subjects are trees because they act as a skin for the voice which creates my story.  Trees can be ancient and wise. Some witnessed the rise and fall of civilizations. They are functional and necessary for our survival because they provide us with oxygen, food and shelter. Trees are sublime, pure and beautiful, demanding nothing but a space to grow and be. They are stoic and magical, virtuous and inspiring. Trees are our life blood. 
~a.
Andrea Currie, tree artist

Take chances, make mistakes. That’s how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave.
Mary Tyler Moore

The vitality of life permeates this oak tree.  May welcomes the sun and shines golden light through her finger branches.  In her grace, May is the goddess of fertility. 

Nature’s creativity is her beauty.  As the rains of spring usher in green from the earth, I sit under the trees from my childhood, resting in the dirt.  I am inspired by my birthday in May: my fingers, hand and arm reach up from the earth in a continuum of life and death. 

As an artist, I use my hands to express myself.   They have helped me heal, and they are blessed with all the scars and sagacity of their stories.
