Atmospheric skies, broad horizons, barns, and quiet farmhouses make up Andy Fletcher’s Midwestern landscapes. His paintings evoke feelings of nostalgia as they celebrate the family farm and an older, more sustainable way of living.
Fletcher earned a B.F.A. from Carroll College and an M.F.A from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He's taught at Winona State University, the University of Wisconsin –Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, and Carroll College. Now, he is a full-time artist and exhibits his paintings from coast to coast.
Sometimes I paint just because I think something is beautiful. Some are simply about the weather. Some celebrate old hand built buildings or the family farm. Most are a rejection of where our food comes from and our culture in general. Most are as much looking back as projecting forward. All of them are sincerely me. – Andy Fletcher
