Andrea's Artist Statement

My purpose as an artist is to portray the beauty and color in our world and its people, especially in the South Carolina Lowcountry, as I experience them with my eyes and within my heart. I have this burning desire to paint! I feel I started so late in life that I want to make up for the lost decades when I had not realized this passion. I want to show paintings of familiar things, places and local people and attract the attention and appreciation for art of those who would not otherwise relate to it. I love giving the joy of art to others.
