Andrea Barnes is a Washington, DC area artist working in drawing, painting, and mixed media.

Primarily an abstractionist, she creates a range of exploratory and imaginative works – from bold colors to subdued images – that are reflective of her experiences and influenced by her interests in science, music, and the process of memory. Her contemporary multi-layered works combine traditional media with personal symbols and out-of-context-images inviting new associations and connections.

Barnes received a B.A. in philosophy from Colgate University and studied fine arts at the School of Visual Arts, New York NY, and at the Corcoran College of Art + Design, Washington DC. Her work is included in numerous private collections.
