Andrew Carson, San Francisco Member Since January 2016 Artist Statement Andy Carson has been painting, sketching, and doodling since about the Fourth Grade, and enjoys working with Acrylic, Watercolor, Charcoal and Pastel, and well as with Pen and Ink. He also likes using plain old pencils, and figures that even crayons will work in a pinch.
He has attended courses at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco, as well as at City College of San Francisco. He has taught private lessons in the Noe Valley area of the city as well as at the Sharon Arts building in Golden Gate Park, teaching Acrylic, Watercolor and Basic Drawing classes and workshops. He has been a local working illustrator for over 20 years, doing illustration work and painting commissions, murals, comics, and even the occasional sandwich board or window display on demand.
There have been random sightings of the elusive and mysterious Mr. Carson out in the Twin Peaks area of SF, reputed to be his new neighborhood of choice and present place of residence.
It has been surmised by many that he also lives in a cave, hidden from the eyes of men in that same District, but will reportedly come out of it whenever someone wants a painting done.
