Hi, my name is Andrea. I like exploring the world and experience new things in life. I have a strong focus on not just making the world more beautiful by creating beautiful designs but by designing based on the perfect concept. I love photography. I love to experiment with new things. I like the opportunity to see new places and meet nice people while being influenced by all my surroundings. I like to personalize my designs. I like to be challenged. I love being passionate about my work. I like the amazing smell of books. I get my inspiration by people that love what they do. I like handmade stuff and the analog work. I am thankful for being able to do, what I love. It feels like a journey that is just beginning and I am excited about the following steps.
