Andrea Peterson creates imaginative figure and animal paintings inspired by narratives and nature. Her latest prism paintings take everyday subject matter and scenes and applies a contemporary cubist-like style to them. The idea came about from seeing her own paintings leaning behind a large piece of stained glass. Creating stained glass was a favorite hobby of her grandfather, of which she now owns some remnants of these colorful windows. Applying this prism-like style to her oil paintings in triangular patches of color that make up the entire canvas she creates a kaleidoscope-type image, where the viewer can feel like they are happening upon a special moment in time.
