BE YOURSELF, EVERYONE ELSE IS ALREADY TAKEN
- Oscar Wild
I believe that you are special.
I believe that the only way you are in this world is by unapologetically being you and therefore accepting the love of yourself. Your body in all its beauty, your mind with all its wishes and your intuition in all its honesty.
That's why I create art that reminds you every day that you are perfect.
That's why I tell stories that show you the power of liberation.
This is me, Andrea
I'm a proud queer 🌈tiny fat 🐳 feminist 💪🏾 artist and story teller. I live, work and travel with the love of my life and my dog in a converted sprinter van.
I always wanted to be an artist, since I was a kid. But because I believed that artists don't make a living I went for the next logical step: Graphic Design. For about 15 years I studied it, was employed in large branding and ad agencies, worked freelance and ultimately ended up being self employed supporting start up and cultural project with their branding and design.
As much as I enjoyed the project I was working on. Something was always missing in my life.
In 2015 I founded a female-powered gallery called We Show Off. I believed that the thing that was missing was my lack of art in my life and the romantic notion of having a shop in town, selling art, meeting artists and supporting them on their path to success.
Something was still not right.
Instead of supporting myself in my art I created a project that will give me the feelings of connection to art with the safety of a business world, again. I was avoiding my own path to my own success as an artist by helping others reaching theirs. I did this during my time in the gallery and then again when I started coaching artists successfully on their business journey.
In 2020 something changed.
I was frustrated and unhappy. I was living a life based on expectations that society placed on me. I had to have the perfect body, being on a constant diet, I had to work hard to reach my dreams, partly working 3 jobs and up to 14 hours a day, I had to have financial success, following a template I was taught was right and I had to have a stable life and relationship.
I started to reflect on the things society told me were „normal“ and I started to forget everything I soaked in about the perfect body, the proper career and creative business.
I'm always in the process of discovering more but for now:
Here I am. An artist and story teller sharing my story with you.

NEWEST PRODUCTS I THINK YOU WOULD LOVE
My products are all Limited Editions. That means that each art print and shirt is only available for a certain amount and when it is gone it is gone for good.
I do that because my work is only one thing: art. It doesn't matter if it is on a shirt or on paper. That's why it is not mass produces so only you who really appreciates the art can also enjoy it.
That's also the reason why I do not offer any sales.
There is just a few of each piece of art and that's why there are no discounts. But there is one exceptions: When you join my Community on Patreon. There you support me on a monthly basis by listening to my podcast, join my monthly challenges and get free printables. To show my gratitude I will share special offers with you only there.
