ANDREA by artist Valerie Savarie
Upcycled clothing and acryla gouache, 15" tall
My best friend growing up was Andrea Paine - she lived down the street. Besides my love for monkeys, I loved playing with stuffed animals (what child doesn’t?). Her stuffed animal of choice was a raccoon whose name I forget. So I named this little lady after her. Andrea likes to play dress up however she is a tomboy at heart. Climbing trees, making mud pies and telling jokes with friends makes her happy. She also secretly loves Dr. Pepper.
