In addition to the traditional art and design studies including drawing, collection development, pattern cutting and printing, I have solid experience in painting, sculpting with marble, glass, wood, artificial rock, photography, illustration and jewellery design which helped me to further evolve my fashion knowledge.
I’m an advocate of learning and passionate about my craft which I am devoted too.
I finalized my PhD thesis in Visual Arts in December 2012. In consequence I was given the chance to start my teaching career in Raffles Design Institute Manila in March 2013 and continue in Abu Dhabi, UAE as Head of Department and then in the UK since then.

Virtual Fairies” hosted by Galateca Art Gallery (Bucharest, Romania); the exhibition is a collaborative, multi-focus project that represents a bridge between tradition and the future. A contemplative multicultural space where both Romanian and foreign artists and designers demonstrate through their creations that the creative resources of traditional art are indeed inexhaustible.
Having known Andra for several years I have seen the quality of her work and capabilities in the Art arena both creatively and practically. My brother is a professional artist based in Berlin and therefore I have a good eye for art and skills as a consequence of his influence.
She is very personable and takes great care in both teaching and lecturing and has a high level of work ethics. She is very relaible and a very safe pair of hands when it comes to this area and I am very sure she would be a credit to any organisation or individual she works with or for.
If you require any further information I would be moe than happy to provide it anytime.
