Meet the “CHAIR-ity” Auction Artist: Andrea Ellis

A childhood spent around auctions and antiques along with a keen eye for form and colour have led Andrea to her current business, Buells Creek Chic Furnishings. Recreating pieces which are fun, functional and that bridge present and past is her passion. Andrea’s philosophy guiding her hand-painted, reclaimed, “re-loved” customized furniture is that vintage objects are meant to be treasured, not used up and quickly forgotten.

Her pieces are highlighted each Fall at the Before the Rush Art Show @ The Ivy Restaurant and are available for purchase at The Coach House of The Ivy this Summer and at BB & Co. opening April 1st.

When Andrea is not slinging paint, she is teaching Kindergarten and being a pet nanny to several families within our community.
