Swell Artist Collective is an open studio and Art Gallery located in Boise, Idaho’s historic downtown, on the lower level of the Old Mercantile Building in The BoDo District.

By combining individual artistic practices and ideas into a common space, their mission revolves around creating a vibrant studio and gallery environment that is open to the public and intent on helping bolster the community's rapidly-growing arts culture. Swell will be host to both First Thursday and independently organized artistic events while maintaining hours of operation during which people can visit.

Andrea Bonadiman

Swell Artist Collective’s Andrea Bonadiman has been diving into art since she was a young child. To not tame a wild spirit, she is always experimenting, finding excitement in exploration of creativity. Bones, skulls, saw blades and canvases are her primary mediums, with an array of techniques applied such as watercolor, acrylic paint, carving and pyrography.

Born and raised in Idaho’s Treasure Valley, she has called this area her home for most of her life—while also trekking through Idaho, Oregon, and Western Montana—always finding inspiration within the places she has lived and worked. After dabbling in art academics for a short while in college she decided that the open road was calling and was soon off to experience life and travel through the forests of Idaho and Western Montana. Upon returning to the Treasure Valley, she pursued her academic career in Wildlife Biology and Natural Resources. Studying forests, the sagebrush of the high desert plains, and volunteering with Idaho Fish & Game. Her artwork draws on these experiences—the colors, textures, and movements in the natural world—merging her two interests of art and science into one.

As an artist she makes ideas come to life through commissions and personalized donations benefiting different organizations, as well as her own visions, and she is always looking for the next challenge to work harder and expand her portfolio. Currently she is tackling various shows with Swell Artist Collective and designing the donor wall for the new Splash Pad in Ontario, OR.
