Andrée Amarica's Biography

BIOGRAPHY

Andree Amarica is an accomplished artist whose paintings have sold in Europe, USA, Canada and the Caribbean. In 2016 she won a Certificate of Excellence in the 21st ArtaVita Online Art Contest and in 2018 she was selected as one of the “Top 10 Emerging Artists to Watch” by ArtTour International Magazine which featured Andree’s paintings in their Summer 2018 Edition.

Andree was born and raised in Quebec City, Canada, where she grew up in an artistic and musical family. Music was prevalent throughout Andree's childhood as her great grand father founded the first Symphony Orchestra in North America in 1902. After studying music and piano for eight years, Andree moved to Europe and began her painting career inspired by the blessings of a great spiritual saint. During a trip to France, she met with several high profile art dealers from England and Spain who invited her to discover the famous Foire Internationale d'Art Contemporain (FIAC) in Paris. These events were the beginning of a long love affair with the visual arts.

Upon her return to Canada, Andree started painting full time and with intense inspiration created an impressive body of work. In 1997 she joined a Cooperative of Artists, called Enriched Bread Artists (EBA) where she was a member for three years. Annual exhibitions were held each year and Andree’s art was well reviewed.

In addition to selling in Canada, Andree was approached by an art collector from Switzerland to expand her artistic horizons towards Europe and international markets. Her paintings are now owned by many private collectors in Europe, USA, Canada and the Caribbean. One of her paintings made the cover of Homes and Land magazine in 2009.
