BIO

Andrea-Shear-artist-studio-fine-art-pain

Andrea Shear is an artist, designer and illustrator from Los Angeles, CA. She studied art and design at Oxford Brookes University in England and at the New York School of Visual Arts where she received her BA in Computer Art. After moving back to Los Angeles to work for a time in visual effects and graphic design, Andrea felt compelled to return to her true passion of drawing, painting and storytelling through mark-making. 

Andrea creates dreamy narrative imagery through the use of oil paint, ink, and watercolor and the subtle juxtaposition of light and dark elements. Many of her pieces depict the fertile relationship between childhood, nature, curiosity and memory inspired in part by Andrea’s experience as a mother and her love of the outdoors.
