Andrea's educational background is in geological engineering and planetary sciences, but after 20 years as an aerospace engineer, she transitioned to being a full-time artist. She is on the board of the Sunnyvale Education Foundation as both liaison to Columbia Middle School and member of the Communication Committee, is a member of the Sunnyvale Art Club, has her own Etsy store and offers classes "experiences" through AirBnB. A native New Yorker who couldn't handle upstate winters, Andrea spends as much time as possible in nature with her like-minded husband who also turned to aerospace after beginning a career in geology and 12-year old son who helps Andrea with painting and Andrea's plethora of other craft hobbies.
Andrea creates organic abstract paintings that reflect her geology and space backgrounds - they often look like rock or scenes from space. The paintings are often colorful but can be custom created for a more neutral corporate feel.
