Living on a beautiful coffee farm on Hualalai Mountain in Kona for 22 years, Andrea is influenced by the sounds, sights, and rhythms of nature each day. For Andrea, art is an ongoing process that begins with meeting the world with curiosity and wonder. Along the way an idea arises and this begins a journey of dreams, unexpected insights and dawning clarity as the image unfolds.
Her primary medium is woodcut printmaking. She made her first linoleum cut print in third grade and can still remember her joy and excitement in the process. Her primary theme is Hawaii’s native species and she often partners with conservation organizations to raise public awareness and support fundraising.
She has a B.A. in Anthropology and is a Certified Trainer of Nonviolent Communication. She works with private clients and offers training to organizations.
