Oklahoma-based Mixed Media Artist and citizen of Muscogee (Creek) Nation, Andrea Day is traditional Mvskoke gone MODERN with a New York City twist. After more than a decade of performing music on the world stage, Andrea returned to Oklahoma where she focuses full time on the development of her medium, acrylic and beadwork on canvas, and creating new work. Her original designs, achieved in the form of acrylic and hand sewn seed beads on canvas, are heavily influenced by her Mvskoke culture and language, Fuswalgi (Bird Clan), and ancient Southeastern Woodland designs, all while guided by nature. Inspiration for her work comes from her life and collaborations in NYC, cultural preservation for future generations, as well as the propensity to always be creating something new, interesting, and relevant.
As a performing artist in NYC, Andrea Day garnered a reputation of thrilling audiences with groundbreaking instrumental performances incorporating improvisation and choreography, including her 2014 Carnegie Hall debut recital in Weill Recital Hall and a feature solo performance on 2013 television season of All-Star Celebrity Apprentice. Her affinity to the world of fine arts and deep understanding and appreciation of her American Indian culture has led to a wide range of collaborative, interdisciplinary projects.
