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. In addition to photography, she also draws and paints with watercolors and acrylics. Her first book, “If Only I Had” (a children’s picture book) was published in 2021.
McAndrews enjoys reading, hunting for geocaches, and listening to many different kinds of music. She also loves late-night cartoons and vampires.
