The relationship between the colors touching, the way they influence each other across the canvas, or the way color can solve problems, this my own personal solution to a composition. Whether I’m experimenting with different combinations or breaking the rules I was taught about color theory, it is the foundation of my work. My paintings are typically abstract but at times incorporate hidden elements of realism and the
human figure.
Here, in this marriage of styles, I have found my happy place. By layering colors, paint drips, and unfinished or blurred lines, I can obscure and distort the figures. The intention is to draw the viewer in and hold her in that space. My hope is that viewers construct a personal narrative based on the images

Andi is located in south central Pennsylvania. Andi studied fine art/art history and graduated with a BFA from Frostburg State University.
Andi works with a variety of mediums, including acrylics, inks, and oils. She considers her art to be abstract. Her work exhibits an ethereal sense of warmth, light, and love but also elicits the sensitive chaos found in nature. Her paintings begin with a foundation comprised of multiple layers of color and a variety of textures. Building from that background she allows intuition to guide her. Defined shapes and forms present themselves organically as the piece progresses. She does not intend her work to espouse a specific message or extract a uniform reaction. Instead, she hopes to deliver a perpetually novel experience to each viewer, evoking unique visceral responses.
