Home Art Artists Artist Spotlight on Andrea Kerpely-Zak


Meet international artist and local Scottsdale gallery owner Andrea Kerpely-Zak who has been creating and exhibiting meserizing foral masterpieces for more than 35 years here in Arizona. 


Zak was born in Hungary where she began her formal art studies, leaving during the Hungarian Revolution in 1956 moving to Canada and eventually moving to the United States. She continued her formal art training and has gone on to have a fruitful career as an artist. Zak has exhibited her work and been collected around the world including works commissioned for Pope John Paul II in addition to winning numerous artistic awards.


Through her career she has always been evolved in the gallery world in one form or another, including running and managing galleries. Through the encouragement of her daughter and fellow artist Andrea Zakrzewski, Andrea Kerpely-Zak finally opened her own gallery in 2004.


Andrea showcases the artwork of Andrea Kerpely-Zak in addition to a small rooster of artists that are local, national and international including her daughter Andrea Zakrzewski. The artwork showcases diverse styles including floral, abstract, figurative, landscape and sculpture. Zak is known for colorful and delicate Impressionist flowers, which the artist says symbolizes freedom and healing. She favors painting with acrylic paint on canvas. While Andrea Zakrzewski loves painting flowers she favors a more modern palette knife technique creating beautiful works in her own right.
