Andrea Kroenig

Hoboken, New Jersey

Chemist, artist, vegan, traveler—Andrea Kroenig grew up in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania and attended Albright College in nearby Reading to study Chemistry. It wasn’t until her senior year that she took an acrylic painting class and was hooked. After moving to Texas, finishing a Master’s degree in Chemistry at Texas A&M University then relocating to Indiana and Colorado, Andrea re-considered her career path and returned to the East Coast to follow her teenage dream in Cosmetic Chemistry and art interest. She started painting classes in Montclair, New Jersey, while living in nearby Bloomfield and within a few years moved directly across the street from the Montclair Art Museum. “I was involved in color 24/7, from my day job at Mehron creating Halloween and special effects face-paint and later at Revlon formulating eye shadow and foundation makeup. Evenings, I’d be at the art museum or up late painting at the easel in my living room.”

Andrea moved to Hoboken 10 years ago and eventually set up her art studio at the Monroe Center for the Arts. She’s been involved with group shows in Hoboken, Jersey City, and Manhattan. Her current paintings focus on portraits and city scenes mixing acrylic, charcoal, and spray-paint.
