Born in Belize, raised on the western slope of Colorado, Andrea grew up alongside a large group of family and friends that fully encouraged her love of art. At 18 years old, Andrea debated studying Fashion Design but instead pursued studying Architecture and received her bachelors degree from The University of Colorado at Boulder.

After working only two years in the Interior Design industry, she decided to steer in another direction and soon after found her true passion: calligraphy and lettering. At the beginning of 2014, she launched West Bloom Paper Co. and began the start of her freelance career.
