Andrea Welton is a painter in constant communication with the natural world. Her creative process begins in nature, hiking, camping, taking long drives, during which she is collecting visual and tactile material. These pieces of experience within the actual landscape are then interpreted and transformed through the artist’s mind and hand into lush abstracts that reference landscape from many vantage points. The affects of her mark making are wide in scope, like a photograph of the earth taken from a satellite.
Welton lives and works in Orange County, CA. Since moving from San Diego she has received her BFA from Art Center College of Design and is currently projected to graduate with an MFA from UC Irvine in 2019.
