"ANDREA BELOFF - COLLAGE - ORIGINAL ART!!! SIGNED!!" Description

ONE OF HER EARLY PIECES!! 32" X 24"


Found at an Estate Sale in Palos Verdes! I contacted Ms. Beloff, and sent pictures. She was surprised to see it, and said it was one of her early works!! Andrea Beloff has made a career as an Artist. She graduated in Fine Art from UCSB. She explored Europe while spending a year in Venice, Italy at the Accademia di Belle Arti working under the influencial abstract painter, Emilio Vedova. She thought she was making a career in abstract oil paintings and miniature abstact watercolors, until she discovered in her final year back at UCSB, the Traditional Japanese Papermaking Technique which she learned from a Contemporary Master Papermaker, Hiromi Katayama. But first, she redefined the technique in her own unique approach and like a bullet set her career in a non-stop forward motion. For eighteen years and with the influence of her Brasilian upbringing, her tropical landscapes created a popular long standing theme, Escape to Paradise. She has successfully shared this inspiration with the world, touching many people personally in her studio and at some of the top Art Festivals in California as well as Florida and New York. Andrea's life and art are making a comeback with renewed strength, passion and emotion. Along the path of transformation, she co-founded the "Artists for Human Rights" group and their work is and will be travelling and making headlines in the US and around the world. She is using her art to deepen her means of self expression. She is inspired by a renewed sense of love and truth as well as her usual love of travel, beauty, spirit and simple living. Her technique continues to be collage using her own handmade papers. The difference that is now surfacing in her work is in a bolder and more confident approach. The use of color is intensified and the subjects coincide with current projects and personal influences. She is also adding other materials and playing with even more dimension. She discovered the art of wrapping copper wired shapes with her paper, wood beads, sea glass. Andrea still lives in Santa Barbara, California where she creates her art on a full time basis. She had exhibitted primarily in a few of the top Art Festivals in the Nation. The Sausalito Art Festival, 1990 -1998; Beverly Hills "Affaire in the Gardens", (1st Place award 1995, 2nd Place award 1991 and 3rd Place Award 1990);La Quinta Art Festival (Poster Artist 1999 and Peoples Choice 1999, 2000); La Jolla Festival of the Arts and Food Faire, (Poster Artist 1996 and 2005); Southwest Art Festival (Poster Artist 1992, 1st Place award 1990-1992); and Beaux Arts Festival Miami Florida (Poster Artist 1999) were among a few of them. Andrea now would love to have her own Gallery, where she doesn't have to move her art back and forth and deal with weather and improper lighting. She is very excited to see that day manifest for her. It's been her dream for a long time. She enjoys getting to know the people that are fascinated by her art and spends much time talking them through all the steps of the papermaking technique as well as introducing each and every piece of art. She also has a team of fabulous artists that she is anxious to represent. Andrea is still self publishing her own Giccle's, notecards and soon a new poster. This new website was a big project. She will be writing Blogs and interacting with her ideas. She is currently seeking out potential licensing opportunities and hoping to continue connecting via marketuers, enterprenuers, and designers for interesting projects that require that special touch as evident in her work.
