Featured Artist

Andrew Blitman

Andrew Blitman is an author and artist who grew up in Cooper City, Florida, and received a Masters in Marine Conservation Science and Policy from the University of Miami in May 2014. Andrew has been creating his beautiful works of art for as long as he can remember. He has used various mediums; however, he recently focused primarily on acrylic paintings. While in quarantine due to the pandemic, Andrew created a series of acrylic paintings and found painting to be an activity that was enjoyable and therapeutic.

“I enjoy creating works of visual art because there is always room for inspiration, ambition and education,” Andrew said. He also enjoys that his works of art often make wonderful gifts for someone special. 

The collection of 10 paintings on display in this virtual gallery are for sale, and Andrew is generously donating 20% of sales to the Els for Autism Foundation. The pricing for each painting is listed in the photo. Andrew says these paintings are some of his favorite works to date. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
