Andrea J. Peters

With her bold, brushy landscapes, Andrea Peters is one of Gleason Fine Arts most recognizable artists. She is a keen observer of the landscape around her. From her cove in East Boothbay, Maine, she paints the views surrounding her home in each season: her flower garden, the shores edge, waterfalls, and blueberry fields. Her paintings are composed for maximum expression. “I push beyond the obvious,” Peters says, and in doing so she creates a seismic shift in the way we see the landscape. The result is a visual extravaganza.

With her bold, brushy landscapes, Andrea Peters is one of Gleason Fine Arts most recognizable artists. She is a keen observer of the landscape around her. From her cove in East Boothbay, Maine, she paints the views surrounding her home in each season: her flower garden, the shores edge, waterfalls, and blueberry fields. Her paintings are composed for maximum expression. “I push beyond the obvious,” Peters says, and in doing so she creates a seismic shift in the way we see the landscape. The result is a visual extravaganza.

With spring, summer, and fall, Peters dazzles us with a riot of greens, blues, reds, and yellows. With winter, she reminds us of that seasons subtleties. Her sunsets rival natures own. Reviewer Phil Isaacson writes of Peters: “Just as the sun indulges itself, so does Peters. Her Maine coast wriggles with color. Hues pile up in layers and then ease their way along the hide of the land. Her style is gestural, spontaneous, and that quality builds a visual tempo. The Maine coast has become a center of visual energy” (Maine Sunday Telegram).

Painting is an evolutionary process for Peters. She forces herself to look afresh at the same view and closely observe each days tiny, incremental changes. Her paintings are a triumph, a tribute to her imagination and skilled hands, a perfect expression of one artists delight in everything that is around her. Andrea Peters paintings stand out as unique and bold expressions of a highly individualized talent.
