Animal Instinct is getting artsy this week as Celia welcomes Andrea Gianchiglia to the show. Andrea Gianchiglia is an animal portrait artist based in Califon, NJ. She is also an art instructor at the Visual Art Center of New Jersey, The Center for Contemporary Artists, and teaches online. Andrea holds memberships to various art groups such as the Society of Animal Artists, the Salmagundi Club, the Catherine Lorillard group and the Pastel Society of America. Painting animals is Andrea’s passion, “A portrait can keep a pet with us for a lifetime, because they aren’t just pets they are family.”  Tune in for a great discussion!

“For me, it’s the eyes that really draw attention. I really like the emotion in the eyes.” [9:30]
