My name is Andrea, I am a Chilean midwife and a self-taught artist. I am currently working on traditional and digital art, using water-based pigments and procreate/photoshop. My creative journey began 2 years ago, in State College, PA. Here, I started learning about watercolors because I really needed to change my routine of life. As an expat, I was missing my country, my family and friends, so learning watercolors gave me the possibility to develop my creativity and express myself. During this time, I have developed a big admiration for naturalist illustration, botanical watercolor and illustrative watercolor.

What is Naturalist Illustration? Naturalist illustration is a discipline characterized by exploring themes related to the nature, like life and biodiversity representations. Those illustrations not only represented the discovered species physiognomy, but also the environment.
