Andy’s main inspiration for his work is his autistic daughter, who he hopes to leave a painting or two behind for her. His loyalty has always lain with acrylic paints, which he uses to sculpt abstract seascapes and idyllic images of sailboats and sunsets. Each work speaks to the adventure and beauty of the natural world, with powerful tumultuous yet colorful skies contrasted with a small sailboat heading out on a journey. Painting is a way that Andy feels peace when he paints and his wish is that others feel the same when they look at his work. He wants others to feel the hope and promise of a better future sealed into each brush stroke and seek that inspiration and serenity.
Andy Corp’s artistic expression came later in his life. Influenced by his artistic sister, he decided to try his hand at painting. His first paintings were received well by family and friends which encouraged him to pursue this avenue of creativity. Andy has no formal training but continued to develop his style by observing other artists and carefully examining other works of art. Now, nearly two years later, he has a collection of paintings that evoke a wide range of emotion, from a happy seascape to a contemplative sunset.
