Last Friday, I had the pleasure of listening to well-known artist, Andrea Myers. She does art that includes sculpting, painting, and working with other objects like fabric, paper, and ziplock bags. Before Mrs. Myers became an artist, she actually began as a humanities/ English major at Carnegie Mellon University. She then transferred to Ohio State and then to the SAIC, which stands for a School of Art Institution of Chicago. That’s is where she decided to pursue art.
Her work is incredibly unique and creative. She uses different materials to create other existing objects. She also does a lot of abstract work which to me, is also very unique. I was inspired by Andrea Myers’ art because as I mentioned earlier, she’s unique and she does what she enjoys. She is a prime example of one of the many successful artists in the country. Her work also inspired me to try new things and new challenges. Abstract work and art is not really my field of study but because her work was so cool, it made me want to explore a little bit more.
Overall, Andrea Myers is a wonderful artist and a good inspiration to other artists and other upcoming artists.
Three fun facts about Andrea Myers: 1) She lived in the woods for a year. 2) She branched on to making her own fabric. 3) She taught at CCAD in 2013.
