Andrea Huelin is a painter who takes her inspiration from the often-overlooked stuff of everyday life. Using loose brushwork, Andrea creates unlikely oil paintings from quirky scenes and juxtaposed objects that have presented themselves by accident. A former journalist, Andrea is interested in observing and recording what she sees, giving pause to fleeting moments and offering new ways to observe the ordinary. She has held a number of solo exhibitions and has taken part in group shows in Cairns, Brisbane, and Melbourne.
Andrea’s paintings are included in private collections around Australia and overseas. She is regularly engaged as a scenic artist for theatre, including the production of ‘Phantom of the Opera’ in Cairns. Her portrait of Stanley Jones AO is on permanent display in the Cairns Supreme Court. Andrea is a member of the National Association of Professional Portrait Artists and is the Visual Arts representative on the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) Committee for the Cairns Regional Council area.
