Andrea Filkins, Alexandria, VA Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement I was born & raised in a small town in southern Bavaria, Germany's most beautiful region (as any Bavarian would tell you). Home was an old farm, with fields, orchards & animals where I lived with my parents, grandmother, two brothers and one sister. In 2004, I followed my husband to the United States.
Besides Photography, traveling is my biggest hobby. I spend hours planning road trips to scenic destinations both here in the U.S. and abroad. I have a long list of places to visit and an even longer list of places to revisit. Some of my past travel besides U.S. destinations were to Italy, Scotland, Spain, Hungary, Austria, Ireland, Mexico, Canada and the Czech Republic.
I hope my art reflects the pride for my hometown and maybe it will remind some of you to pay close attention to the silent beauty of the places that we all to often pass without looking.
Enough said about me, now please enjoy my galleries.
