Born and raised in Paris, TN, Andrew is a self-taught artist that found his way into visual art after a Spirited Art class provided by the University of Tennessee Chattanooga during finals week. After the class, Andrew decided to further his path down visual arts and continued to expand his creativity thru photography as well as music and poetry. Through finding faces and other figures in the paint, Andrew has developed a unique style of expressing his faces and artistic expression through the use of different medias. With this expression, Andrew hopes to take his audience on an introspective journey when viewing his art.
