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

Primarily an abstractionist, Barnes 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, NY  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 has been shown in regional and national exhibitions and is included in numerous private collections.
