Andrea Faith Potter - Biography
Tasmanian born artist, Andrea Potter, has enjoyed a versatile career.
Potter was an honorary research associate for a year at the University of Tasmania
after graduating her fine arts degree. She also completed a Post Graduate Diploma at RMIT.
Since her first solo exhibition in the mid 80‘s, Potter has had over 50 exhibitions around Australia.
Potter’s work in the past, has consisted of installation, sculpture
(handmade paper, fabric construction and mixed media) as well as large works on paper.
Potter’s work has been recognised in numerous publications,
including Art and Australia and Arts Craft International.
Potter has worked on projects as diverse as a collaboration with classical musicians
(for a performance artwork) and the commission
for wearable art – a wedding dress constructed from hand-made paper.
Potter’s feminist artworks were some of the first in Tasmania
to be created with the ‘feminine’ mediums of fabric, embroidery and paper.
