About The Artist
Andre was born in Hammond, Indiana. After leaving Hammond, he deciding to reside in the Seattle, WA area with his wife and two children. As a young boy, painting was just a hobby for Andre. He soon began mastering his talent to become the self-taught artist he is today. In his earlier stages, Andre's basic interests were creating his own cartoon characters. As he grew artistically, his vision began to change. He started to focus more on the anatomy, physiology, and spirituality of the human body. Andre also realized that there was a need to show the strength and beauty of his culture. Andre has participated in several art shows and his work has been displayed and sold at the largest African-American art gallery in the Seattle area. He has also donated paintings to auctions for United Negro College Fund and other charities. Most of Andre's work is with acrylics. His unique style with bright, bold colors is one of great detailed expression and movement. As an artist, Andre strives to paint images that are positive and full of life. Andre's company name is The Stroke of Andre. He sells his artwork from his home office in Renton, WA. Originals and giclee' prints are available and may be purchased through mail order. If you are interested in purchasing any of his work or if you have any inquiries, please call 206-679-7441.
