She is the owner and artist behind A Work of Heart Studio in San Jose California started in 1998.
Andrea loves her daily creative practice and sharing knowledge of materials and process with others. She finds great joy in breaking down seemingly complicated processes into simple steps and has adopted a guiding principle of "First, Not Only". The attitude of "first, not only" gives us permission to playfully explore without fear.
Currently most of Andrea's live classes are happening via zoom. Occasionally, as students are willing, live and in-person classes and events will be scheduled in the beautiful and spacious San Jose Studio.
When not focusing on art and the business Andrea enjoys fostering kittens for her local county and takes pride in placing each and every furry baby in loving homes.
