Rochelle Andrews has been a professional fine artist since graduating from an Illustration Degree at Victoria University in 1996. Creative Arts has long run in her family as her great, great Uncle James Brown was NZ’s first political cartoonist from 1852 and her passion for painting was largely influenced by her Father with his own talent for oil painting and Aviation Art.
Rochelle has had solo exhibitions in New Zealand, Dubai and London. She has undertaken many commissioned pieces and her artwork can be found in private/corporate collections Internationally.
“Rochelle creates ’larger than life’ flower paintings accentuating the beauty of flowers in close-up. Her work never fails to capture the colour and depth of her subject matter, sometimes bold, sometimes delicate and always beautiful. These calm and thought-provoking canvases are a delight and the talent that she shows capturing her subject is quite extraordinary.”
