ARTIST STATEMENT / BIO
Andrea grew up in the small mountain town of Black Hawk in Colorado. She moved to Albuquerque to attend the University of New Mexico where she received her B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Fine Art. She initially studied silver sculpture, but settled on acrylic painting following school. She currently works out of her studio at Helikon Gallery in the RiNo Art District in Denver, producing colorful acrylic paintings centered around the female form, that natural world, spirituality, yoga, Ayurvedic and other healing modalities. When she paints, her feelings tend to reflect the subjects of her art. Sometimes elated, and sometimes physically bound and emotionally constrained. These feelings are also mirrored in Andrea’s yoga practice, which is another of her passions that informs her work. Whatever the feeling being brought out, it reflects in art as well as life, and helps her to change, and grow as a person.
