FROM SOIL TO SKY

About the Herky

My design is meant to be a cross-section of the Iowa landscape, from the soil below our feet to the sky and stars above our heads. I used brightly colored acrylic paint on the sculpture. I also outlined each element in the design with black paint, giving it an illustrative feel.

Meet the Artist

Haley McAndrews

Haley McAndrews, an award-winning artist from central Iowa, was born in South Carolina. She was introduced to Adobe Photoshop as a teenager, and much of what she learned about digital painting was self-taught. In 2009, McAndrews graduated from St. Cloud State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Art Photography. She also paints traditionally with watercolors and acrylics; however, her first artistic love has always been drawing. McAndrews is also a writer. She launched the Red Stone Art Blog in the spring of 2022. She has written and illustrated three children’s picture books and one poetry book, in addition to illustrating five books for other authors so far.
