Audrey McNamara

Born in 1982, Audrey McNamara, came, the first of 6 children, to a humble family in Aurora, Colorado. As a child, drawing was pure play to the young artist, and she spent countless hours at her drawing table, tool in hand.

In 2005 Audrey obtained a vocational degree in Fashion Design/Garment Assembly at Emily Griffith Opportunity School in Denver.

Early days, working as a freelance artist brought Audrey influential mentors, and in 2008 it was suggested, to her, that she move to expand her field of opportunity in Los Angeles.

With an education from Venice Beach in street vending, Audrey spent time in prominent cities all over the country, and in Latin America, showing and selling her work, and gaining notoriety.

Today, she lives, with her two daughters, in Los Angeles, California, doing predominantly fine art painting and book illustration. Audrey gives many thanks to her collectors and clients for so much support over the years!

My work draws inspiration from pee wee fight songs and the indifference of the female praying mantis. Hoping to convey a youthful outlook whilst soiling my clothes

Born 1965, grew up on Paloma Court in Venice, CA.

Solo Scott - Radio VeniceFight for your passion like your life depends on it, because it literally does. Growing up in Venice made me who I am and afforded me a lot of opportunity. At the age of seven, I got a surfboard for Christmas and I was off and running, obsessed, and became passionate about surfing from then on. That art, or talent, kept me sane amidst all the insanity.

– Solo Scott

The Opening Reception for the West of Lincoln Project is on Saturday, August 5, 4:00–8:00 pm @ Venice Arts, 13445 Beach Ave, Venice Marina, CA
