Bio


Born in Portland, Oregon, Andrea has lived a nomadic sort of existence in an eclectic mix of beautiful and inspirational places that have formed her particular aesthetic: Oregon, California, Washington, England, Connecticut, Argentina, France, and currently she splits her time between a home she and her husband have painstakingly restored in Napa, California and a home they have built on the remote Henry Island in Washington State, where they also operate an oyster farm. 


With a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Washington, Andrea has also completed extensive coursework at the International Center of Photography (New York), the Silvermine Guild of Artists (New Canaan, CT), writing workshops at WICE in Paris, France, and studied oil painting for ten years under the tutelage of artist/painter Janine Wesselmann. 

Prior to turning her full-time attention to painting, Andrea was a figure skating coach and choreographer in Portland, Oregon.  When a number of transfers due to her husband’s job took them to Connecticut, Buenos Aires and Paris, Andrea turned a life-long love of photography into a profession, concentrating on fine art photography and portraiture.  Upon returning to the U.S. after expatriate life, she opened the gallery/boutique, Hazel & Sid, in which she imported artwork and antiques from markets and artisans in Europe, South America, and both coasts of the US.  She also turned her focus to painting.  Andrea thrives on challenging herself to evolve creatively, which is reflected in the varied subject matter, technique, and style of her painting.

Though she strives to have her work exhibited publicly at least once a year, much of her work is commissioned and in private collections in Europe, South America, and across the US.  Andrea donates 100% of her painting proceeds to charity, in particular the Erik & Andrea Anderson Scholarship Fund (through the American Indian College Fund). This fund currently supports four full-time Native American students in the disciplines of art and environmental sciences. Other benefiting charities include the victims of the Valley fire (Napa County, CA), and Tiba Foundation.

* Many of the paintings shown on this website were lost in the 2017 Napa fires when Andrea lost not only her home and studio, but also over 20 years of her artwork.
