The Pelican Gallery

About

Growing up on the East Coast of Florida, Andrea Naylor was exposed to a strong coastal culture rich in art and surfing. Her passion for Public Health led her to join the Peace Corps in her early 20s and move to a remote fishing village in Ghana, West Africa. Post Peace Corps, Andrea returned to the U.S. and went on to pursue a Masters in Global Public Health and to live and work abroad in Niger, The Dominican Republic, Australia, Malawi, and most recently Jamaica. It was when she was living abroad in Australia that she started painting again full-time. Self-taught, she prefers independent study and draws inspiration from traveling and spending a great deal of time outside, which has allowed her to develop a unique style. She has exhibited her work in Florida and here in Door County, and she currently sells her work by appointment at her studio and through annual exhibitions. To date Andrea has traveled to over 25 countries and participated in over twenty art exhibitions.
