Meet this months featured Artist-in-Residence, Andy Lepe! Visit Andy in Studio B4 during the next Open Studios on June 3rd.
Andy Lepe is a geometric abstract artist that creates calm hard-edge paintings with subtle transitions in colors.
Lepe developed a mindset practice he calls “Color Flow” created to help slow his over stimulated and hyper active mind in order to tune into being present. This process embraces calmness and taps into a gentle rhythmic stream of creative thoughts.
Lepe’s paintings depict our own unique frequencies through colors that uplift, shift and unlock the greatness within.
