Andrea Buchanan


Colorado native Andrea Buchanan began painting as a way to relax in college nearly 20 years ago. After receiving a Bachelor's degree in English from New Mexico Highlands University she began a 10-year career in newspaper journalism in a variety of places including New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and Missouri. Notes for her stories were always full of doodles and sketches. Upon returning to Colorado, Andrea shifted gears and began a decade-long career as an insurance agent. During that time, she also picked up her paintbrush again and began study with acclaimed artist and teacher Laura Reilly. In April, 2015 Andrea made the leap to full-time professional painter, joining her jewelry-making sister Rebecca to open Dos Chicas Studio in Colorado Springs.
