ANDREW BELLAVIEBy Mastrius
“Well, if we’re all gonna die, I may as well try something I really wanted to do.”
This thought at the start of the pandemic started Mastrius navigator ANDREW BELLAVIE on a path of capturing our varied landscape in oil—a path on which he says he’s now addicted.
Now together with the group of artists he helps facilitate with #mastriusmaster Sharon Lynn Williams, Andrew is building connections that make a difference.
“I got to a point where it was difficult to focus on anything else. Where are we going next, what’s the plan, what can we paint here?”
An environmental chemist and consultant, Andrew’s passion has always been the land. Travelling to beautiful and sometimes remote places and painting his experiences expresses the attachment, passion, and responsibility to the environment he feels.
FOLLOW @rcky_mtn_art as he lives by one of the philosophies that drives his art—just give it a shot! And as he follows the path of his passion; “I hope I can continue to do this work I love so much and I feel has helped contribute to the cultural capital of where I live.”
