Meet Andy via Video

Although Andy has been expressing himself artistically since childhood, he didn’t begin to pursue art as a full-time profession until early 2010. In fact, Andy waited until I (his wife) was pregnant with our fifth child to announce his intentions. I contemplated the term “starving artist” while hoping and praying for the best.

Andy was determined to chase his dream and his dedication paid off. Within two and a half years, he was named the 2013 Visit South Walton Artist of the Year, a coveted title along 30A. Three years after announcing his intentions of becoming a full-time working artist, he opened his own gallery in Grayton Beach. It’s been a whirlwind, and I’m thankful to announce that we aren’t starving. Whew!

Zehnder produced this video of Andy for Visit South Walton. In it, Andy explains how he gets ideas for art and how he acquires the materials he uses.
