Andrea Tsang Jackson

Andrea Tsang Jackson is a textile artist, quilt designer and author based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Her work has been published in Flare, Uppercase Magazine, Curated Quilts, Modern Patchwork, Love Patchwork and Quilting (UK), and Make Modern (Australia). In 2017, she was the artist-in-residence at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 and created The Here & Elsewhere Bee, a collaborative quilt made with nearly 1,200 visitors to the museum. The quilt was awarded 1st Place in the 2018 Modern Quilt Guild’s Group/Bee Quilt Category. She was the recipient of the 2016 Etsy Canada Award for New Talent for her Diamond Gemology Pillow.

Andrea has been a lifelong creative dabbler until quilting has became the main medium through which she explores her interests in material, geometry and place. Her background in architecture has allowed her to understand the design process from a variety of approaches; her training in life has taught her about the beauty in mess. As an educator, she wants to inspire others to reach their own creative potential and to see themselves as designers of their own lives. Although her favourite colours to wear and design with are neutral, she loves to play with colour in her 3rd Story Workshop.

Andrea holds a Masters in Architecture from McGill University and a Masters in Arts in Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
