Andrea, a multi-media artist residing in rural Ontario,  exhibits and teaches internationally. A 2013 Niche Award Finalist and named as  one of the top influences in contemporary fibre art by Fiber Art Now magazine,  Andrea is collected by Sonny Kamm and the Bronfman family’s Claridge Inc.  collection. Andrea is widely published and recognised as an innovator in her  field.
Using cleaned, carded and (sometimes) dyed  wool fibre, Andrea uses ancient feltmaking techniques to create magical  form.  Materials are selected for each piece based on the attributes of the  particular wool that will provide the desired result.  After the layout of  the fibres, water and soap are added. By hand rubbing and/or rolling the work  over many hours, the scales in the protein fibres tangle and migrate to form a  fabric. Andrea may finish work by adding stiffeners or other mediums and does so  for esthetic purposes.  Andrea prides herself on technical excellence and  knowledge of her materials.
