“The Escape” By Northwest artist Andrea Traphagen

Andrea Traphagen paints her original watercolors and acrylics in vibrant hues…taking you from fantasy worlds to old world to current times.

With the stroke of a brush and a vivid imagination, Andrea’s paintings transform you into a world of mermaids, dragon flies and old growth forests. She has created an impressive array of art depicting Pacific Northwest landscapes as well as the high desert scenes.

Traphagen exhibits her work at Bay Avenue Gallery in Ocean Park, Washington, Sea Gypsy Gallery in Astoria, Oregon, Ella Gray Home and Gifts in Kalama, Washington, and Turqoise House in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

I would define my work as impressionism with magical realism,” said Traphagen. “Some paintings are pure fantasy while others are realistic with whimsical elements.”
