My name is Andie Vester. I was born and raised outside Atlanta, GA, and currently attend school at the University of South Carolina in Columbia. I’m 21 years old and I have been studying Visual Communications for two years now. First and foremost, I am an oil painter. I’ve been painting from a young age and find so much peace and joy in my work. I have chosen an education route, however, that prepares me to be a more adaptable artist of many different forms, my favorite of which is photography. Pictures have the ability to capture a moment in time and preserve it untouched, forever, and to me there is special kind of power and intimacy in being the person behind the lens. I currently use a Canon Rebel SL1 with an 18-55 mm lens. This blog will exhibit photos I take for school and for fun throughout my personal journey in life.
