Andrea Tishman has been an artist in the Boston area for over 25 years. She works primarily in oil on canvas, oil on wood panel, and pastel and charcoal on sanded paper. Her recent work features the trees she observes. From the uniform groves of vertical evergreens to the twisted, muscular branches of gnarly, old beech trees, Tishman tries to capture the stillness, beauty and exultance of the woods, as well as the sometimes fragile relationship between trees and people. Tishman received her BFA from Cornell University and studied at l’Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. Her work is in many private collections and has been exhibited in galleries in Massachusetts, New York, and Paris.
