andrea piller

Andrea Piller is a well known artist and is part of the artistic community of Prince Edward County where she has her own studio. Her studio space becomes the focus of her creation process – a world of unique sculptural works and limited editions.

 

She is a graduate from the Ontario College of Art and Design.  Today she still shares her enthusiasm and knowledge for art and clay through Toronto schools through numerous indoor and outdoor mural installations, teacher workshops, education conferences and art centres across Toronto and the Quinte region.

 

Her work is primarily hand built sculptural vessels that are interpretations and responses to the natural world. She has shown her work both nationally and internationally and has been the recipient of numerous art awards from the Ontario Arts Council and Ontario Art Education Association.

 

“The urge to create with material takes me closer to my interest in both the simplicity and the wondrous complexity of nature. This process is a constant reminder of transformation and regeneration. I seek the connections between our bodies and fragments of the earth. Nature is the magnificent model, the immediate muse of my designs and imaginings. I try to redefine and celebrate in a gesture.  There is release and expansion, providing impetus for further possibilities in clay.  Intensity, reverence and possibilities….”

 

Gordon and I first met Andrea at our gallery. She left us her coordinates and as soon as we discovered her artistic journey we knew she would be a great addition to our gallery.
