Audrey McNamara was born in Denver, Colorado in 1982. At a young age Audrey spent many hours at her drawing table expressing an interest and having a great talent for art. During her teenage years she won many school awards and continuously surprised her teachers. Audrey had her very first solo art exhibition in 2003 at Mutiny Now Gallery in Denver. Many more shows followed, as well as the chance to show her work in bookstores and coffee shops. When Audrey became established as a freelance artist she enrolled into Denver’s Emily Griffith Institution of Vocation and Design. Her Education in fashion design helped mold the signature style Audrey’s art carries today. At the beginning of 2009, she moved to Los Angeles, California to expand her networking and search for further opportunities. She currently resides in Venice, California, where she is raising her two children, and expounding her art experience with different types of jobs, mediums, and, ever increasing, fine art opportunities.   Audrey thanks her collectors and supporters.
