Featured Artist- Andrea McArdle Posted on July 7, 2015 by Jessica Love As many of you know I am obsessed with art and love to promote local artists. It has been a while since I have featured a local artist, but we are back on a blogging spree and hope to feature many more in the near future. Check out Andrea McArdle; she does everything from portraits to murals. I can’t wait for the opportunity to to collaborate with her and feature her as a muralist in upcoming projects! Stay tuned. Andrea McArdle is an artist based in Austin, Texas. Her works range from large and realistic to small and imaginative. In her large-scale works, she relishes capturing the truths and insecurities of her subjects. In these works she prefers to use a large brush keeping the paint loose and messy. She also enjoys painting and illustrating in smaller-scale; these paintings are normally bright, playful and child-like. Andrea began her education at University of Houston as a Painting major in 2002. After taking a break from school, she finished her degree at Texas State University in 2011. She now works at her studio in East Austin. Check out more of her work here.
