"I have so many things to tell you; if only out of my mouth came pictures."
Andreana Rosnik is the only child of two metro-Detroit natives, and before becoming a chemist she dreamed of becoming an illustrator. Upon returning from a post-bacc in Barcelona and beginning a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry at UC-Berkeley, she slowly re-learned how much the creative can inform the analytic. She continues to pursue scientific and artistic pursuits in parallel.
In 2009 Andreana's artwork was featured in the Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. In 2016 several of her pieces have been shown on the UC-Berkeley campus in the Fletcher Lab Art Show and in the first annual Art Millennium Exhibition in San Francisco. In 2017 she has participated in Arc Gallery's Snap! Exhibition, as well as the Fletcher Lab Art Show and the Chocolate and Art Show (San Francisco edition). Additionally, she was a student contributor to the mural painted on the Cesar Chavez building on the UC-Berkeley campus; this was done in collaboration with two muralists from Precita Eyes.
Her current focus is on small scale illustrations: pen-and-ink drawings of the darker sides of human inner life, paint pen sketches of concentric blossoms, and colored pencil depictions of the natural and supernatural in the universe.
