Whimsy of Andrea

Born in 1950 in Chicago, Illinois, Andrea Folts is an artist known for her whimsical style and for her bold intense use of color. Her paintings have been shown and sold both in and outside of the United States.  In addition to her paintings, she has a line of note cards that are reproductions of her paintings.

With a deep compassion and passion for animals and nature, she is primarily drawn to doing pet portraits and whimsical renditions of animals and flowers. She finds a lot of joy painting the creatures she loves in very bright, bold, intense colors. Seeing colors in her mind’s eye she transfers them to the canvas. She claims she doesn’t think there’s a place for her where she can have more fun than while at her easel.

Working in several different mediums over the years, she discovered that it‘s painting with acrylics that she enjoys most. She returned to college in her forties to study psychology, but discovered she was attracted to art, and more specifically drawing. She then studied under individual artists with whom she learned more about style and composition. She began her work seeking perfection until she finally discovered that she would only feel accomplished and creative finding a style of her own.

She resided in Mexico for a period of nine years.  While living in Mexico she taught herself to paint.  The Mayans introduced her to innocence and a primitive, childlike attitude which they expressed through their art form. This gave her permission to discover those qualities in herself. She discovered that art was not about perfection, but about taking risks, enjoying the process, and remaining positive. So she let go and allowed herself permission to experiment. She discovered much about herself, to enjoy the process, and to have fun.

Andrea began painting for her own enjoyment, but soon was asked to do art shows and to sell her paintings. She discovered that many people were very excited about the intensity of color, and the imagination she was displaying. She had no intention of selling her work. It was public support that encouraged her to continue.

Many people have questioned her about what real art is. It is her personal belief that art is about imagination and creativity, and what you as the viewer enjoys and moves you.

“I am hopeful that my work will move you in some way, and that you will enjoy the color and the imagination involved in creating each piece.”

“Thank you for your interest in my art!”  Andrea
