Andrea has been an artist since the day she could hold a pencil and brush. Her first collected piece, saved by a friend’s mother, was a painting done in nursery school illustrating life for orphans in another country. Making art for others to enjoy and understand has always been Andrea’s goal. For her each piece needs to be beautiful and have a meaning even when the message is as straight forward as, “This gorgeous blue makes me happy!”
Andrea was born and currently lives in New York City. She has also lived and studied in France and Old San Juan Puerto Rico. Her work includes costumes and sets for theater and dance, clothing and textile design, book illustration, surface patterns for home products, jigsaw puzzles, greeting cards and other stationary products, mosaics, wall décor and prints, shopping bags and many other individual products and visual projects. Her embroidery work has been used to create teaching programs in Afghanistan and her large collection of Judaica is used in various forms to teach history.
Andrea loves new projects turning each one into an appealing item that touches people.
