Bio

Andrea LaHue, aka Random Act, is widely recognized for her monumental botanical paintings across America.  As an Army brat and former model, her travels exposed her to art throughout Europe and the Americas and inspired her to uplift and instigate with her paintings. She has shown in Los Angeles, New York and Paris and on the streets of 51 U.S. Cities. Newspapers, including The Huffington Post, NBC News and The Associated Press, have featured her murals and millions have seen her contributions to projects for Martha Stewart Living and How I Met Your Mother.

LaHue’s socially conscious art ranges from giant murals to delicate historical portraits.  She is erasing the boundaries between street art, public art and fine art.
