We are stoked to get back to First Friday celebrations and even more thrilled to host zentangle inspired artist, Andrea Konstant! Andrea grew up in Elkton and studied art at Blue Ridge Community College, she later went on to pursue a degree in organizational leadership at Eastern Mennonite University. When she isn’t creating new colorful works she can be found hiking, camping, or kayaking, or even in a foreign country.
Andrea Konstant rekindled her love of art in the middle of the pandemic and hasn’t looked back, she pulls inspiration from different aspects of nature such as flowers, shells, and rocks. There is no lack of inspiration for Andrea as she is constantly on the move, she has traveled to Nepal, China, Thailand, India, and all through Europe. She plans to eventually visit every single National Park in the United States, which will lead to even more creative pieces.
Andrea found that studying art didn’t provide the same satisfaction as creating art, and jumped into a zentangle class in hopes of getting back into touch with her creative passion. Her love of art took off more than ever before and she rediscovered her excitement for color, shade, and composition. Konstant’s style focuses heavily on color interactions and shades married with natural elements.
Although most of her work hones in on color, she enjoys experimenting with black and white illustration and geometric subject matter. You can check out more of Andrea’s colorful creations through the month of September at the CW Depot! Or check out her Instagram for her newest pieces!
