Andrea L - California Caricature Artists

Andrea L

Andrea was born in La Jolla, California and has lived in California her whole life. She first started drawing when she was 4 years old and hasn't stopped. In 1994, she recieved a Bachelor's degree in Visual Art, Studio Emphasis, at the University of California, at San Diego (UCSD), Warren College, taking a variety of studio art classes, including: sculpture, drawing, painting, animation, as well as art history and art theory. Minors were in Scientific Perspectives and Sociology.  To further her study of art, she did an internship at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego. She did a second internship at a non-profit art organization called Sushi, a visual and performing arts gallery. Getting involved in student organizations and illustrating for several student newspapers completed the picture.

The combination of academic and extracurricular activities brought together the liberal arts education of her dreams. She draws for special events throughout San Diego County and has been drawing professionally since 1986. Andrea is personable and enjoys this work! Every event is a unique situation and every face presents new challeges.  She started out in portraiture before ever venturing into caricature. Her style of drawing caricatures is a blend of straight portraiture and goofy caricature. The emphasis Andrea has chosen in this art form is being an entertainerand she specializes in drawing live caricatures and bringing smiles. She loves to talk & draw...

Andrea is a professional member of the "National Caricaturist Network" and has been a member since the organization began in 1992. She has contributed articles on her various experiences to the quarterly NCN newsletter "Exaggerated Features." The dynamic members of this organization have helped influence her growth as an artist more than any one individual artist.
