...with wildlife and landscape artist Andrea Oakley

​Meet the Artist

     Hi, my name is Andrea Oakley, and with the exception of a high school art course, I am a self-taught artist.  I have a passion for exploring new techniques and many different mediums including graphite, pen and ink, watercolor, acrylic, and my favorite: oils.

     Growing up in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, I have always admired the abundant wildlife and gorgeous scenery found here.  I have also had the pleasure of traveling to several other places around the globe.  No matter where I go I am amazed at the beauty and diversity found in nature, and this is what I try to reflect in my paintings.  As you view my artwork it is my hope that you delight in them as much as I delight in the special moments that they represent!
