Andrea is a textile artist.

Andrea’s woven and printed textile practice focuses on the textile traditions and wooden cut carvings distinct to specific provinces in her homeland, the Philippines. For her final major project, Balikbayan (meaning to return to one’s country after a period away), Andrea produced a collection for interiors and furnishings consisting of ethnic patterns translated into woven jacquard, and printed fabrics created from lino-cuts. Evoking feelings of warmth and nostalgia, Andrea’s pieces have a strong sense of place and origin, celebrating the craftsmanship and traditional making skills that are deeply embedded in Filipino culture.
