Andrea Joyce Heimer (b. 1981, Great Falls, Montana) lives in Ferndale, Washington. She received an MFA from the New Hampshire Institute of Art and has held teaching appointments at Oregon College of Art and Craft (Portland), Western Washington University (Bellingham), and Emily Carr University of Art and Design (Vancouver).
Heimer’s painting and drawing practice investigates the subject of loneliness—largely informed by autobiographical stories such as her own adoption—in order to examine how humans experience feeling alone and its connection to how and why we make art. Her work has been covered in outlets including The Wall Street Journal, Art in America, New York Times, The New Yorker, New American Paintings, and Huffington Post.
Heimer is represented by Nino Mier Gallery in Los Angeles.
