Andrea was very knowledgeable and attentive. It was a fun class, she is at ease teaching and very inclusive of all of the skill levels of her students and was super helpful. Better than any class I took at UT-Arlington . Not to mention she has a charming personality.

Title or Location: River and Trees
When I make these watercolor paintings, I'm aware that cameras and AI can make the art much faster than me. So I make these paintings using techniques that optimize the strengths of this medium.Exaggerated color palettes and wild brush strokes give the viewer a stronger sense of the communication happening between my mind, eyes, and hand as I make art. It's very low tech and personal. There are faster ways to make art, but none that express me better.

Title or Location: Penarth Pier Sunset
Chasing the sunset. I'm an artist and mother with a great love of running. Since becoming a mother in 2021, my free time has dwindled into near non-existence. So, when I do get out for a run, I always want to make the most of it. With little time to train, my exercise had been condensed into early mornings and evenings around my boy's sleep times. Despite the less favourable timing this has brought with it the glorious benefit of gorgeous winter sunrises and sunsets across the water.Alon

This is a painting of my oldest son, Mike, when he was 2 - enjoying the snow in his favorite Cookie Monster snowsuit. Mike passed away 13 years ago at the age of 29 from complications caused by a congenital heart defect, so this was a special labor of love!
