Andrew Blanchard was born in the wild swamps of Louisiana, though was raised in Waveland, a small beach community on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Like most boys who grew up close to a beach, he fished and swam until the ring of the dinner bell. Blanchard earned a B.A. degree from the University of Southern Mississippi in 2000 and in 2004 an MFA degree from The University of Mississippi/Ole Miss in Oxford, Mississippi.

Blanchard's print-works on wood and paper have been included in more than one hundred group and solo exhibitions and have been collected throughout the United States, as well as in Hawaii, France, Bulgaria, South Korea and the United Kingdom. His work has been published in numerous arts and literary publications, such as New American Paintings, the Oxford American, several issues of Manifest Press’s International Painting Annual and most recently, Ecotone, published by Lookout Books. His prints are in the permanent collections of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, LA and the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson, MS.
