About Andrea


Andrea Kowch holds a BFA from College for Creative Studies in her native Michigan.

Largely self-taught and influenced by the work of American Masters and the Old Masters of the Renaissance, Kowch paints in a controlled manner with close attention symbolism and mood.

The allegorical side of her work is intended to draw parallels between human experience and the natural world. The lonely and desolate American landscape reflects the human soul, symbolizing all things powerful, fragile, and eternal, she says.

Kowch has received numerous honors and exhibited in Capitol Hill, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Diane von Furstenberg Gallery, and Margulies Collection, among others. Her work has been collected nationwide and in Canada.

"These painting remind me of J.W. Waterhouse and the other pre­Raphaelites. I always loved that stuff. It's all so odd and dreamlike and pretty. My favorite Kowch picture is called Dream Chaser. I can't tell what's happening exactly but it's beautiful and the colors are incredible-- ­­so warm, like those great dark moments before a summer afternoon storm. Wait, maybe that's what's happening!"

Really great painting. Wish the painting was larger so as to include the high power fan on the left of the picture. None the less, I can hear the sound of the wind- talk about a wind tonnell
