Andria Burchett - "That's Colored Pencil!"

People are often surprised when they discover Andria's work is done in colored pencil.  Depending on the desired effect, Andria will use one to dozens of pencils layered and blended seamlessly.  A colored base often peeks through the finished work and provides unity under an expansive palette.  A variety of techniques pushes the limit on ways to apply colored pencil.  Andria has won numerous awards locally and nationally.  She is an active member of the Colored Pencil Society of America, The Northwest Area Arts Council, the Geneva Greater Arts Guild and Water Street Studios.
