Andrea graduated from Walla Walla University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and has been a hospice nurse for 23 years. During those years, when not packing up and moving from state to state and country to country, Andrea and her Air Force husband David raised 3 crazy boys who became 3 amazing men. Having grown up in the PNW Andrea and her husband were thrilled to be able to return to live in Damascus OR after David retired from the military. Andrea, who has always dabbled in painting and sketching, again picked up her paintbrushes and began creating art. Her interests in medium vary but she is mostly pulled to watercolor and pen and ink. Andrea believes that every soul has creativity and artistry at its depths. She wants to help provide opportunities for those who may not have materials or a safe space to explore their creative selves.
