As this exhibit demonstrates, Andrea has enjoyed experimenting with a broad variety of media, including graphite, pen and ink, acrylics, pastels, watercolor, charcoal, printmaking, and photography.  She has also designed logos, T-shirts and tattoos, as well as fingernail art.  She draws inspiration for some of her subject matter from her many travels with her family, including Africa, Europe, South America, the Arctic, Florida, and yes, New Hampshire.  Andrea appreciates the Jaffrey Civic Center’s willingness to let her share her work, and sincerely hopes you enjoy the exhibit. She has previously exhibited her work in the Armonk Outdoor Art Show in both 2014 and 2015, the Katonah Art Museum Student Exhibit in 2016 and has received 5 National Scholastic Art Awards.
