Traveling the planet has given Andrea a window into the natural world, from the tiniest plants and creatures to the great vistas gained from the air. Patterns are revealed at all levels that hold regardless of scale. “I find comfort in this simplicity because while there are a great many components, it feels as though they assemble in similar ways into living systems that have an inherent symbiosis allowing them to operate together. Questions are constant in my mind as I explore. Our instinctive desire for comfort and safety has led us to endanger ourselves, yet we seem unable to adjust to a less comfortable way of being in order to preserve the very environment we require to survive.” Andrea is an artist, a scientist and an explorer at heart, driven by a desire to understand and possibly, through her visual communications mediums, help change this trajectory on which we find ourselves.
