Andrew Judkins

Oil Painter from North Mankato, MN

Andrew was born in Eau Claire, WI but has lived most of his life in North Mankato, MN.  He majored in studio art at Gustavus Adolphus College and received his MFA in painting at Savannah College of Art and Design.

Andrew says he gets the question, “why landscapes” very often.  His response: “What I want to say is, why not?  We are born on landscape, live off of and in the landscape and when we die, we become an actual part of the landscape.  No subject could be more relevant and deeply resonant with people.  In a way, landscape is even more personal to the human experience than portraits and figure paintings.”
