Serious creative thinking in my Central Studio.

About the Artist

Andrew has held several distinguished positions over his career as an artist, first as a graphic designer, illustrator and art professor. Andrew now divides his time doing the two things, which he is so passionate about creating art and teaching art.

When Andrew is not creating art or teaching he spends his time traveling throughout the southwest for inspiration for his paintings. Andrew lives in Austin, Texas where he works out of his studios, which are both located in very vibrate parts of Central Austin and East Austin, which seems to add to his creative energy.

Artist Statement

In the early part of my painting career, my images (mainly figurative) were more technical, stemming from my illustration background, however over the years I have seen that my paintings have transited into more abstract-representational images.

My work evolves from my personal experiences, surroundings, family events, memories and imagination. All of these elements combined with my paints and exploration of shapes and color fuels my imagery. I normally start each piece with a plan, which may include a pencil sketch or small painting, but somewhere in the process a more intuitive process takes over and the painting just evolves taking a direction of it’s own.
