Andrea is passionate about art, colour, patterns and the joy it brings to her life every day. She believes in the joy of dreams, ideas and materials, the teaching, the learning, the making, the giving and receiving. Art is such a giver of joy, first to the maker, then the buyer and/or the receiver.
When times are tough and life seems a bit grey, a bright piece of art made with passion and joy will always elicit a rainbow smile.
