Andrea is in her final semester of graduate school at Syracuse University where she is pursuing her Mater of Fine Arts degree in Ceramics. She focuses her efforts on making well crafted porcelain pots intended for domestic settings. During her undergraduate studies at West Virginia University, Andrea traveled to Jingdezhen, China for a semester to study traditional Chinese porcelain. She returned 2 years later with the help of the Regina Brown Undergraduate Fellowship for a more concentrated study of qinghua (blue and white underglaze decoration.) Prior to beginning her studies at Syracuse University, Andrea worked as a studio assistant to potter Silvie Granatelli in Floyd, VA for 2 years. Following graduation she will return to Floyd, VA to pursue a life as a studio potter along side fellow potter Seth Guzovsky at Poor Farm Pottery.
