From growing up in small town, South Carolina, all the way to the big city lights of Mile High, artist James Andre’ indulged in his original style in oil and acrylic paintings. Mr. Andre’ often explores his lucid state of dreaming to conceptualize or ‘see’ his artwork before he even touches the canvas. Lucid dreaming is the act of being aware of your dream state, and in turn, creating a world with limitless opportunities. This is where James Andre’ goes to paint. It is this method of conceptualization that sets him apart from other artists. Mr. Andre’s unique style of work has led to many accomplishments such as scholarships to The South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts, gallery features, awards, and most importantly, an invaluable following that is now rapidly growing here in Denver!

“All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness.”

-Eckhart Tolle

Jared is a local content contributor and aspiring author. He was fortunate enough to grow up in Golden, Colorado and graduated from MSU Denver. While an insatiable love of travel lures him all over the world, his roots remain firmly planted here. He enjoys writing short stories, poetry, children's books, societal observations, and everything else. A nature enthusiast and sunshine connoisseur, Jared is perfectly at home on any mountaintop or patio. He frequents art galleries and concerts, poetry readings and breweries, museums and bookstores. When he isn't making neighbors cringe at his musical attempts he can be found on a snowboard or sailboat, depending on the day. A perpetual adventurer and eternal patron of the road less traveled.
