About Andrea

Andrea is a Chicago Illustrator. She graduated from Columbia College Chicago obtaining a Bachelors in the Arts focusing on Children’s Illustration. She found her inspiration from Rachel Renee Russel’s books at the age of 10 and began drawing ever since. It wasn’t until she reached high school that she discovered about Columbia, and did what was needed to get into the school. Through her studies in college, she learned so many sides of illustration and found another passion, greeting cards. Ever since she started college, she did commissions of doing people’s invitations and making greeting cards. Now that she will soon be an alumni, she is always pursuing her goals of being an important role in children's books and illustrating people’s ideas to life.
