Having trained at Winchester School of Art and gaining a BA in Textile Design Andrea started her career selling textiles before establishing her own interior design business, specializing in corporate and domestic interiors in 1993.

One of her first commissions was designing a retail concession and establishing a corporate identity for Oliver Sweeney within Harvey Nichols which resulted in her being invited to work exclusively for the store, creating all of the lift facades, cash desks and visual displays.

Since then she has worked throughout Europe for designers such as Richmond International, Hirsch Dedner Associates, Andrew Winch and Reymond Langton. For the latter, she created architectural artworks for two of the company’s super yachts.

Andrea has designed architectural artworks for the Sandy Lane Hotel in Barbados as well as the Queen's Tennis Club, Parker Pens, Citibank and Rabo Bank, to name a few. An avid painter her commissions include corporate artworks for the Curzon Cinema Group, private clients with super yachts via Andrew Winch and Reymond Langton both of which design boats for the super rich.

Andrea is passionate about whole design process of design and speaks in a very intuitive and informal way which engages the audience every time.

Tailoring each presentation to ensure she produces something that totally suits each individual client Andrea has an innate ability to connect in a friendly and approachable style that’s believable and easy to understand.

Her TV credits include Home Front and Real Rooms, both for the BBC, Renovation Street for Carlton and Channel 5's Britain’s Worst DIY-er. She also presented on UKTV Style's Our House (Series 1 and 2), appeared in her own series for Discovery entitled Babies’ Rooms and designed a house for GMTV as well as making regular appearances on Sky interactive and This Morning for ITV.

Her Corporate commissions include presenting exhibitions and live demonstrations as well as giving in-store talks for John Lewis in conjunction with Ideal Home magazine in 2006 and again in 2008, in a whistle stop series of shows around the country. She’s been a celebrity presenter at the BBC Good Homes Show at the NEC in Birmingham and most recently she’s been a guest speaker at Design week at the Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour in conjunction with Global Colour discussing colour Psychology, its uses in Commercial Interior Design and links to Colour Trends.

Andrea contributes to a whole range of interiors magazines and currently has a regular, weekly slot in The Sunday Times, answering readers’ design queries. She has published five books: Decorative Paper (Conran Octopus), Decorative Crafts (Collins & Brown), Makeover Magic (Cima), and New Ways with Paint (Cico books). Her latest book Children’s Rooms (Cico books is due for publication in May 2008.
