Andrea K. Lawson received her MFA from Parsons New School, NYC. She was born in Hollywood, California, where she was drawn to colors of dried grass and pachyderm hills. Her studio now overlooks Port Townsend Bay where she is inspired by greens and sunset hues. Her vibrant paintings have been exhibited internationally. Public art: Brain Beauty, Beauty Brain was recently installed in the Camano Island Library, Washington. Andrea is an active participant in the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators where she received an honorable mention from Tomie dePaola. Andrea is a graduate of the Artist Trust Edge Program.

Her studio’s location has facilitated her interest in the changing light of sea and sky. Carla Aurich writes, “The expressive building and scraping of paint becomes a witness to time and explores weather patterns and atmospheric conditions of a single moment… a portal to an enchanted environment...we are summoned through the portal into a lush landscape to engage with the wonders of the natural world.”
