About the Artist

Andrea Walker creates realistic paintings and drawings, and she specializes in portraits and still lifes. Her work focuses on a beautiful arrangement of shapes and light, portraying the beauty in the world through people and objects. Andrea was born and raised in Tennessee, then moved to Georgia to study at the Savannah College of Art and Design where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration.
