Hi there!

I am Andrea, and this website is my journey of becoming a freelance illustrator.

My approach is conceptual, with integrated intellectual components. My work's purpose is to draw attention, make you stop and think. My job is to find the best visual solutions to the challenges of my clients’ assignments.

Besides work, I like to take care of my dog and my plants, cook nice pasta and watch Netflix with my boyfriend.

Please contact me if you are interested in creating stuff together.
