Hi! I’m Andrea. Nature is my favorite playground. Exploring the beautiful complexity in the details of tiny organisms and plants, as well as basking in the magnitude of mountain ranges and water, in all the places it gathers, photographing marvels as I go, delights my soul. 

I've been enjoying nature and landscape photography since I could hold my Dad's old 35mm camera up to my face. I still gasp and giggle, several decades later, when I come across a waterfall, or discover the remarkable intricacies of the fauna and flora along my path.


I’ve had the unique opportunity to live in several different countries, including spending 7 years in Guinea, West Africa. Travel and adventure have been woven throughout my life, thanks in large part to my parents. I invite you to journey together with me as I share the beauty and glory of this wondrous planet we call “home”.

Awards, Exhibitions and such...

"Grieving" was chosen in a juried national competition in Spring of 2024 as 1 of 7 pieces displayed on 4x8 foot panels for an outdoor exhibition, at the entrance to the iconic Fountain Hills Plaza in Fountain Hills, AZ (NE of Phoenix).

The expiration of the “official” 40 days of mourning did little to remove the heaviness of grief from the weary face of my neighbor after the passing of her husband. The weight of sorrow on top of new financial worries lay heavily on the aged face of a strong woman who has already endured much suffering.

"Man of the Soil"

"Man of the Soil" won the Grand Prize in the first-ever "Capture Minnesota" contest, created by Twin Cities Public Television. It was chosen from among 95,934 submitted images. This image, and "Fishin' with Grandpa, fresh from the farm" were also among the select images chosen to be published as a coffee table book, sold at Barnes & Noble.

Artists whose work I appreciate

Bobbie Blakely

Bobbie is a metalsmith-wordsmith, designing beautiful personalized jewelry, to commemorate specific events or life experiences.

Shirley Robinett

 Shirley is a mixed media collage artist, who paints on paper, cuts or rips the paper into pieces, then reassemble the pieces into images, often adorning each piece with natural elements like feathers, flowers, grasses, and porcupine quills. Each creation is not only a piece of art but a manifestation of her belief that art carries the transformative power to heal and inspire.
