Welcome Natalia back to Michigan! Join us for this reception with light appetizers and dessert in honor of my long-time friend Natalia Andreeva. (22 years this fall!). Natalia will share a few tips while completing a painting en plein air. Don't miss this great opportunity to learn from a master painter! All skills levels are welcome. Although this is a "reception" we ask that you arrive promptly at 5:30 so not to miss any of the demonstration.
Natalia Andreeva is a professional artist working with oil and watercolor media. Of Russian origin and presently residing in Tallahassee, Florida, Natalia traveled extensively through out the world, living many places abroad and in the United States, and was exposed to a wide range of artistic styles and traditions.
Among Natalia's favorite themes are exquisite plein air landscapes, depicting the subtlety of nature; still life, where vibrant shapes and internal dynamics are shown in contrast to the commonplace subjects; and finally, figures and portraits brimming with humanity, and giving testament to the beauty and harmony of the human condition. The possibility of extraordinarily free brushwork along with the transparency and freshness of the resulting paintings are, for her, the mediums strengths.
Natalia holds a diploma from Novosibirsk State Pedagogical Institute; her education includes postgraduate studies at the department of Painting and Composition at the Moscow Pedagogical University, and numerous workshops throughout Russia and the USA. Her work has been distinguished with honors and fellowships and can be found in private and corporate collections. Learn more about Natalia.
