Cover Artist Statement

andie018web

I have spent the last three years in Olympia, growing, running into the same 13 people on the Westside, and most importantly, learning that I could bring parts of my freaky, outrageous inside world to the outside. My art is inspired by the different behaviors of humans, humor, what they react to, what they do/do not seem to care about.  Dolly Parton, Kris Jenner, my sister, Diana Ross, Oprah Winfrey, Mariah Carey, and Leandra Medine-Cohen. I want my art to make people feel a range of emotions. I strongly believe that experiencing and expressing all emotions is to live life to the fullest. My art is meant to challenge, confuse, and cause discomfort in folks of all walks of life. I do not make art to make you feel good or bad.
