More on Gossamer Lane Fine Art
The gallery store Gossamer Lane Fine Art, convenient to JBLM in Roy, WA, and right next door to City Hall, features the nature-inspired art of Pacific Northwest artist Andrea Levanti.
In 2001 Andrea moved from Connecticut to rural Western Washington where daily inspiration from nature is boundless, with views of the beautiful Mt. Rainier, it’s Cascade Range and the Olympic Mountains. In spite of the grand views, the focus of her art is nature, up close and personal and often larger than life. She finds many of her subjects right on the land where she lives, from the barred owls that come to the woods to hunt in spring to a simple flower blooming outside her window.
Watercolor and colored pencil are her media of choice, as they allow the precision necessary for the realism she loves. It’s not enough to see a photo of a subject; she’s compelled to immerse herself in it and then bring it to life with her own hands. Some of her greatest artistic inspirations along with nature are Anna Mason, Beatrix Potter, Charles Renee Mackintosh, Claude Monet, Emily Carr, Ernst Haeckel, The Group of Seven, and Wassily Kandinsky.
