"Using unconventional hardware - a blow torch, iron and other heated tools, along with paper, photography, resin and natural materials - Andrea employs mixed media with deft skill and innovation. Her uncommon painting techniques yield to a vision that is intense, mysterious and ethereal.
Her artwork embodies that vision particularly in her underwater series, and those that depict subjects of wild horses and aspens.” Renee Phillips, Writer, Professional Artist Magazine
Bonfils states "My inspiration comes from our organic universe and humanity as I glaze or layer wax over photographs, manipulate lenticular 3D images or render subjects lost within a waxy fog". I use all mediums in what Van Gogh called a “language of nature”. My aim is to translate curiosity and adventure within images that articulate physical, spiritual and scientific phenomena.
