Andrea was fortunate to be trained to draw in a life class by a sculptor. This was followed by a session at Chelsea School of Art and a year in Paris in a minor studio, the emphasis being on drawing and sculpture.
Married to a Yorkshire farmer, her painting has always been connected to animals and the landscape around her.
She now runs a low maintenance organic garden with poultry at Gillamoor near Kirkbymoorside.
Andrea does a wide range of creative work that includes feltwork, painting and sculpture.
