Andrea was born and raised in Sarnia, Ontario. She studied Fine Art at Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario, graduating with honours in 2006.
While there, she discovered her love of drawing with pigments such as pastels and charcoal. She finds it a very fluid medium, allowing her to move light and dark across the paper.
Her imagery usually involves the human face and form in some way. The subject matter in her work is depicted realistically, yet with a twist. She uses lines and swirls to create movement and energy.
