ART BY ANDREW VAN DEGOEDE

Oil Paint, Charcoal & Chalk

“There is no doubt that the grey days

of the Pacific Northwest has had a large

influence on Andrew's restrained palette

and love of value based artwork.”

Andrew ‘Van’ DeGoede grew up on the Puget Sound surrounded by the natural beauty of towering mountains and opulent forests. It's no surprise that such beauty would prompt a desire to not only capture it, but to understand, and only then, to truly enjoy it. There is no doubt that the grey days of the Pacific Northwest have had a large influence on Andrew's restrained palette and love of value based artwork.

DeGoede traveled to California to receive his Bachelor's Degree in Studio Arts with a concentration in Art History. He dedicated the final years of his undergraduate years to Portrait Drawing under Tony Pro. Returning to Seattle to attend Juliette Aristides' Classical Atelier, Andrew gained a solid foundation in Academic Drawing and Traditional Oil Painting techniques. Working as the atelier assistant and leading classes outside the program, Andrew found an unrealized ability and passion for instructing.

He further developed his instructing experience at the Coppini Academy in San Antonio, Texas, where he was asked to lead a Classical Drawing & Painting program. Returning once again to Washington state after two years, DeGoede is now completing his graduate degree in Fine Arts and honing his Alla Prima oil painting practice.
