About the artist

Andrea trained in Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art, the Slade School of Art and the British School at Rome on a painting scholarship.

Her painting ‘A Contemporary Mappa Mundi’ can be seen on display at the British Library as part of their permanent collection.

Andrea is a featured artist in Tess Jaray’s collection of writings – ‘Painting: Mysteries and Confessions’.

A move to London (for the Slade) sparked an interest in William Blake’s poetry as a way of navigating and mapping the city.

She is also inspired by the writings, visionary works of Thomas Traherne, the 17th Century poet. In 2018 she was made honorary member of the Traherne Association.
