United States as a young man and settled on the Monterey Peninsula in
1967. It was on the Monterey Peninsula that he discovered his
true interest and love for art. After several years of studying
and self-training in art, Andres Morillo became a student of the great
American watercolorist Donald Teague. During the ten years he
studied under Donald Teague, Andres Morillo completed approximately
72,000 compositional sketches, many of which he still uses today and
incorporates into his creative compositions.|
Although taught by
one of the best, Andres Morillo embarked on his own journey. Feeling an
unlimited potential and an unquenchable thirst for discovering
something new, Andres Morillo began painting in a new direction.
Well versed in all mediums, watercolors, pastels, and oils, Andres
Morillo exploded with new ideas using an unconventional approach and
introducing color as a primary element in his works which are
interpretations of nature's beauty.

intended to capture the viewer instantly and remind us that nature's
harmony lies in the interaction of color, light, and form, elements,
which are superbly balanced in his paintings.

generation, a different way of creating art. The approach that he
takes to color in his paintings is intended to allow the viewer to see
color in a new way. This fresh approach to color has not gone unnoticed
