ANDREA MAKI ART + AWARENESS
Andrea Maki, the founder and president of Wild Love Preserve, is a contemporary visual artist and photographer whose professional art career spans over 30 years, exhibiting and in collections nationally, including the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Born in Seattle in 1966, Maki graduated from New York University in 1988 with a degree in painting, and her father is renowned sculptor, Robert Maki. Wild Love Preserve is an interrelated extension of Andrea Maki's conceptual multi-media work, existing as a living environmental art installation and project that will be protected in perpetuity.
"My work is not something outside of me that I do. It is what I am, it is what I know, it is my past, present and future at all times. I am in a continuous state of discovery. My intent has always been to promote positive energy, action, awareness, compassion and understanding. This is who I am, my work reflects my being. I believe humans are but a mere part of the whole and that we have a responsibility to that whole. I believe in doing all I can to have a positive effect on the environment and all living creatures. I believe in keeping ones’ word and in taking responsibility for ones’ actions. To be honest, to be forthright, to live without fear. To be open, present and aware. To not only live in the moment, but fully appreciate the moment." - Andrea Maki, 2001
