Andrea Bonfils is an American contemporary artist whose practice includes mixed media, photography, and encaustics and is driven by a desire to evoke sensation, play with our perceptions, and see our interconnected nature. Known for uncommon painting and photographic techniques, she uses unconventional hardware - a blow torch, iron, and other heated tools, along with paper, resin, and natural materials. Most of her inspiration comes from the natural world as she captures her subject's movement, drama, and complexity. She has presented in numerous solo and group shows and art fairs worldwide and has completed over 80 commissions. Andrea Bonfils lives and works between Darien, CT and Sante Fe, New Mexico.
