Graduating in Fine Art from Edinburgh University and College of Art in 1977, Andrea has been consistently concerned with making art in various ways ever since. She has exhibited in London, Aldeburgh, Cumbria, Somerset and Dorset. In the early eighties she was proprietor of an Arts and Crafts Gallery in Coniston, Cumbria. She has sailed the Atlantic and worked as a charter skipper in the Caribbean, painting to commission for guests and fellow sailors along the way. She taught Art in Dorset for the 24 years and in July 2013 left the classroom to focus full time on her own art practice again.
Andrea spent the last few years experimenting with approaches to painting, printmaking and drawing, creating images inspired by the natural environment with an abstract approach. Her current work is totally abstract with no conscious reference to the physical world.
