Andrea Soos

Soos’ pieces reflect the same openness to experience with her media that she encourages in her studio. The approach is about responsiveness and joy in one’s inner engagement in the moment, with colour, form and composition. Her body of work does not show a refusal to be categorized, but rather a simple embracing of the alternatives - curiosity, dynamism, and boundlessness. As varied as her pieces are, her generosity with her own intuitions and spirit traces an unintentional thread through them. Each work is alive and radiates with play.

This same generosity makes Soos the model for her ideals around process, and the champion of the many different artists she guides. As is true of an individual piece, a person’s creativity is a process. Whatever our obstacles, Soos’ intention is that we simply bypass them in the doing. If we allow ourselves to work in the moment with the materials at hand, our intuitions are allowed in automatically.

Soos strives to be a supportive and engaging peer and educator in her field. Her studio, Poppet Creative, inspires fellow instructors and artists in the creative community. Since her BFA training there, Soos continues to find her creative home in Victoria. Listening to and following the promptings of her own artistic voice, she helps more and more people find theirs.
