"In both art and nature, I am drawn to spaces that prompt heightened awareness, offer visual journeys of discovery, and invite greater empathy."
-Andrea Packard

Inheritance immerses viewers in thick, rich textures of different densities as yarns, threads, carpeting, rug backings, pastels, and paper are combined to create unexpected resonances: an incomplete quilt, a disassembled coat or sweater, a map, a topographical relief, or an agricultural landscape. The title and familiar intimacy of the materials evoke a sense of familial connections and history.

A graduate of Swarthmore College and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Andrea Packard received an MFA in painting from American University in 1994.
