"Hare's" and Others by Andrea Joseph

Hare's by Andrea Joseph

Hare’s by Andrea Joseph

You can tell by her drawings that Andrea is a keen observer of the world around her.  On her many “collages” and moleskin sketches she somehow brings to life the little objects that fill our lives.  Once you really take a moment to study these drawings (she provides large versions of her drawings on her website) you realize just how time-consuming these must be.  I imagine creating these works must be a sort of meditation, but that’s just speculation on my part.  Certainly worth a closer look, especially if you’re a fan of moleskin sketches.  You can check her out over at Andrea Joseph’s Sketchblog, which she regulary updates.

  • Thank you so much, Lee. That’s very kind. It always amazes me to hear that people are touched by my work. And, meditation indeed it is! Cheers.

  • I came across your blog while researching artists for a project I am doing with some students at my school and I just wanted to let you know that we are all a massive fan of your work. I have directed so many students to it and all respond with a big ‘wow’. So… thank you!!!

  • I found your blog whilst looking for artists to research and work from for my final year of GCSE art. I think your art is so original, nothing I’ve ever seen before. The simplicity of each drawing, then to be put together to create something much more complex, is extraordinary. Please continue to do what you do because it is a great credit to the art world. Thank you:)
