My name is Andrea Gardner. I recently spent three and a half years living in Norway and painting in a studio called Atelier St. Olavs in Trondheim. It was a wonderful experience. It was a huge learning opportunity being able to paint alongside other artists and participate in workshops on various techniques put on by Norwegian artists.
After moving back to my home in Balfour I decided to try recreate that environment here. On November first 2011 I opened my own working studio and gallery to a welcome reception.
I have four other artists displaying their work in the gallery ( with photos to come) and a group of us meet once a week to paint together in a relaxed, happy and positive environment. .
