“Reflections of Gratitude”
The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude.
~ Friedrich Nietzsche
The season of Thanksgiving – a time of gathering with and appreciating family and friends. A time for expressing gratitude.
Gratitude is an art of painting an adversity into a lovely picture.
~ Kak Sri
This call seeks to discover visual expressions and representations of gratitude. Art that embodies gratefulness you have felt in significant moments of your life and in the lives of those you hold dear.
Andrea Lamarsaude is a primarily self-taught artist specializing in abstract and fluid art, mixed media and collage. She enjoys using a variety of mediums in her art; acrylics, oil pastels, alcohol and India inks, hand-painted papers, image transfers, mark making tools, and lots of love.

My works visually tell captivating stories. My hope is that they encourage conversations and bring positive, creative energy into the world. Trusting my intuition and following my heart has been the best way to create not only my art, but also my life.
