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.
