Andrew Maioli was born and raised in the suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts. After earning degrees in chemistry (B.S. UMass/Boston 1994; Ph.D. Brandeis University 1999), he worked for a small biotech company in Worcester, MA for nearly 6 years, before moving to southern Nevada in 2004.
In his early youth, Andrew studied art and painted with his grandmother, an artist as well. However, he took a nearly 20 year hiatus until he moved to Nevada. Shortly after that move, Andrew returned to art. Painting in acrylic, Andrew uses a series of dry-brushing and washes to create luminous landscapes, seascapes, still lifes, and pet portraits. Some of his creations have a photorealistic quality, while others lean towards the abstract. His collectors reside in the northeast and southwest.
Andrew is currently a member of the Henderson Art Association and, since October 2006, has served as HAA Gallery Director. You can see more of his work at Gallery-A.org
