As an only child born in Stinson Beach, California and raised in Kent, Ohio, Andy Krebs uses the solitary experiences from her life to influence her work. An underlying theme in her figurative paintings is the uninhibited flow of thoughts that arise in secluded moments. Her acrylic works are characterized by a heavy foundation of drawing, a quality driven by her education at the University of Central Florida. There she studied drawing and painting while simultaneously earning her B.S. in environmental studies. In addition to being influenced by solitude, Andy’s works are also shaped by her environmental background and connection with the natural world. Andy now lives and paints in Delray Beach, Florida.
