Andrea Mae Metz
June 7, 1959 – May 16, 2020
Andrea Metz was born in Denver, Colorado and she comes from three generations of artists. She worked in NYC and lived in Athens for a period of time, studying both the history and art of the region. The Greek culture became a major influence, rich in ancient mythology and classic archetypes. When she moved to Seattle in 1989 she found similar information embedded in the tribal cultures of the west coast. She spent time in Alaska and settled in Grand Junction where she continued to work on her art. Within the forms she created, she captured the struggle and grace that make a 'heroic' life.
Talented, kind, generous, empathetic and a gentle soul, she was greatly loved and will always be missed.
