Transmutation: an act of changing, or being changed into something different


These paintings describe pregnancy, birth and motherhood. Birth is a physical and emotional journey that changes and shapes the identity of a woman. The artist aimed to create an artwork where experiences like pain, breastfeeding, love, transformation and welcoming a new life are represented. Andrea specializes in naturalism and wildlife. However, in this opportunity she decided to show how she sees and experiences motherhood as a first time mom and midwife. The artist hopes that her work would be a portrayal of the emotions of pregnancy, birth or motherhood in a real and relatable way.
