Andrea received her MFA in Drawing and Painting from CSU Fullerton in December of 2017.  Her work is steeped in the tradition of figurative painting. Her work spans across disciplines as she really enjoys working with sculptural forms This is evidenced in how she carves out, scrapes back and adds on layers of paint. In addition to figurative painting Andrea has strong ties to plein air painting. She feels the process of painting outside helps her form color relationships based on observation that traslate and inform her studio practice.
