Her work has been shown nationally and internationally and she has been the recipient of numerous art awards and Ontario Arts Council grants. As an artist educator and community arts facilitator, Andrea shares her enthusiasm and knowledge of visual arts and creative fluency. “I try to imbue what I believe is essential in all of us, that which connects us to the world; courage to create on a personal level and challenge the imagination. Finding this is often a life journey. Sharing this is a joy.
