I am mixed media artist Andrea Manard. I find beauty in the old and abandoned, and I love old paper of just about any kind, especially old maps. I love poring over them, finding interestingly named places, seeing how borders and place names have changed through the years.
I've had art featured in Cloth Paper Scissors mixed media magazine, and you can see an article I wrote in the july/august 2010 issue. I am very excited to have a piece chosen for the cover of their 2012 mixed media art calendar!
HGTV visited my home studio a while back to film two segments for the show "That's Clever". You can watch me make a large mixed media 3-d painting of a house by the sea, and a collage and glass soldered pendant on YouTube! there is a link to my youtube channel here: www.andreamanard.com
i have a shop of memphis related gifts and art (mostly using old maps)- http://www.etsy.com/shop/memphisonthemap?ref=…
