Andrea Shear is an artist, designer and illustrator native to Los Angeles, CA. Andrea first discovered her love painting at the age of 8. 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 in visual effects and graphic design, Andrea eventually returned to drawing and painting.
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, and curiosity inspired in part by Andrea’s experience as a mother and her love of the outdoors.
