Andrea Reichert has worked for more than thirty years in various art mediums. She felt the calling of art at 12 years old, studying drawing from an art teacher in Phoenix, Ariz. She trained in oil painting at UC Davis, Ca. and spent a year abroad at the Beaux Arts in Bordeaux, France. Andrea then advanced, learning acrylic and gouache for several design professions.
In 2004, Andrea started working in watercolor, and went back to her first love ...of painting flowers and plants. The time spent in Europe fed her appreciation of classical themes. Painting botanicals has become a form of meditation by concentrating and chronicling the details of fleeting life forms. The rewards are gaining intimate knowledge of graceful creations through line and color. Prints of original works and commissions available.
