Doodling from an early age, grew into creating characters which were licensed in various product areas across the globe. Currently, Andrea has turned her focus to illustrating children’s picture books and developing her writing skills.
As a traditional artist, she has a passion for art materials, mixing various mediums and thoroughly enjoying the emotional and physical process. Living in the countryside, with a studio looking out at fields of cows and sheep, she enjoys painting nature and the gorgeous British birds that chirp hello outside her window. People, especially of different ages, also feature strongly in her illustrative work. When not creating, Andrea loves to bake, and is currently learning French patisseries.
