andrea armstrong studio

I eat, sleep, and paint in East Vancouver, Canada.


I spend my days (and often late nights) in my cozy studio, working on commissioned illustration, fine art, and graphic design. My paintings tend to be character-driven. There‚Äôs a story in every face, and illustrating these stories is my favourite thing. 


With roots in rural Indonesia, small-town Manitoba, and metropolitan Singapore, the gathered impressions of my childhood inspire my palette. I like to work in many painting media, but am most satisfied when working with oils. 


interested in working with me? give me a call! (just kidding. I prefer email.)
