ABOUT

Andie Thrams (b. 1952, Oakland, CA) is a California-based visual artist. A lifelong devotion to creative work in wilderness habitats, especially within the pages of her field journals, has evolved into artist’s books and paintings held in numerous private and public collections throughout the United States. Her work is widely exhibited and has been honored by institutions including Sitka Center for Art & Ecology and Yosemite Renaissance. She earned a BA in art practice from the University of California at Berkeley and she regularly teaches outdoor art workshops. She is currently at work on two series of paintings and artist’s books, “In Forests” and “Field Studies.” These projects document her treks into wild forests from California to Alaska and are a contemporary hybrid of the illuminated manuscript and the field journal. Andie has been a working artist since high school; she has worked as botanical illustrator, graphic designer, cartographer, calligrapher, exhibition designer,  art educator, river guide, waitress, grocery bagger, ticket seller and occasional publisher, as Larkspur Graphics. She lives in a small river town in the Sierra Nevada foothills with her husband.
