Art Brokerage: Andrea Smith American Artist: Smith has been painting for more than 30 years, and she continues to produce vibrant colors and beautiful journeys that express her passion for peace- peace within and its result, peace on the planet. "It's about knowing our connection to all creation," she says, "appreciating that love is born of compassion and forgiveness, and understanding that in order to receive love, we need to give it." Indeed, her paintings are visual meditations of this statement, spoken in a universal language, conveying a universal message for humanity. Smith's work can be found in prominent art collections around the globe, including: Russian Children's Bibliotech Library, Moscow, Russia; Pereslavl Museum, Pereslavl, Russia; Rodrigo Carazo, former President, Costa Rica; the Center for Attitudinal Healing, San Francisco; Japan Travel Bureau, Tokyo; and the Pearson Art Foundation, Des Moines, Iowa. Her paintings have appeared in one-woman shows in dozens of prestigious exhibitions, including: Forbes Gallery, Oyster Bay, New York; World Vision, Los Angeles; ArtExpo, New York and Los Angeles; Ron Segal Gallery, Seattle, Washington; "Art of Emotional Healing," Cairo, Egypt; and Images International, Bethesda, Maryland.
