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 East Tennessee, then moved to Georgia to study Illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design and attained a Bachelor of Fine Arts, while also studying with acclaimed portrait painter Amy Lind. She now resides and works in Cincinnati, Ohio. 

Andrea's artistic approach incorporates attention to detail, strong design, and a realistic rendering of light and texture through many layers. All of her work displays a calm and peaceful quality, commonly involving elements from nature. Andrea mainly works with drawing media like pastel, charcoal, and graphite. She also works with watercolor, acrylic, and digital painting and enjoys both the depth and vibrancy of color, as well as the contrast of black and white work. Her creative approaches have won her many awards, inclusion in juried exhibitions internationally, and features in curated publications. Andrea is represented by 3 Square Art Gallery in Fort Collins, Colorado.
