Artist Information

Andrea Penn Bain

Artist & Sil­ver­smith from For­ney, Texas in the sub­urb of Dal­las. I have cre­at­ed art my entire life. I won a full tuition art schol­ar­ship to attend Texas Wes­leyan in Fort Worth and grad­u­at­ed from there in 1987 with a Bach­e­lors in Fine Arts. I have cre­at­ed and sold art through the years while being a graph­ic design­er and then an Edu­ca­tor. Dur­ing my years as a teach­ing artist, I designed an art pro­gram espe­cial­ly geared toward hear­ing impaired stu­dents in Dal­las ISD. I have also taught art for the past sev­en years to ele­men­tary stu­dents, in Gar­land ISD. While I was teach­ing art in Gar­land, I was the dis­trict coor­di­na­tor for the Texas Ele­men­tary Art Meet. I also devel­oped the GISD Fine Art Pilot pro­gram for Ele­men­tary Art. When I was a teacher, I was a huge advo­cate for young chil­dren express­ing their feel­ings through art. I typ­i­cal­ly draw and paint, how­ev­er; I taught myself to sil­ver­smith in 2020. At this point in my life, I am retired and am devot­ing my time to my pas­sion! I am cur­rent­ly cre­at­ing jew­el­ry with turquoise and gem­stones. I have also been draw­ing a series of large insects, one of which is titled The Cica­da named Big Ass Bug of Texas. This piece won first place in the 2022 Texas State Fair, this past fall. I recent­ly start­ed exper­i­ment­ing with acrylic pours with glass and resin. I have an artist page on Face­book, Insta­gram and Twit­ter, in which I share updates for my Etsy shop, Andrea’s Orig­i­nal Art Co.

I want to pro­mote the love of art and cre­ativ­i­ty to the world, despite each of our own indi­vid­ual dif­fer­ences. I cre­ate each of my pieces with the inten­tion to put a smile on the face of those that view my art­work. I want my art to inspire oth­ers to embrace the oppor­tu­ni­ties that our world has to offer through nature and a lit­tle bit of fun.
