Andrew Power

  My name is Andrew Power.  I’m a landscape oil painter based in Santa Cruz, Ca..  I love life, I love to paint, I paint to give thanks for life.  My images are imagined.  My goal is to build interesting spacial illusions, while setting up exciting color contrasts.  I hope viewers enjoy interacting with my work, and find themselves relaxed while they explore the different spaces within.  

  I was raised on the central coast in San Luis Obispo county and moved to Santa Cruz in 1995 to attend Cabrillo college.  I enjoyed many art courses there then transferred to UCSC where I majored in fine arts with a painting emphasis and graduated in 1999.  I paint at every opportunity and am so gratefull to do it here in Santa Cruz.
