Find Andrea Smith Illustration on Instagram, or meet the maker at the Makers & Shakers on Saturday 4 November at Albert Hall.
Andrea Smith is an illustrator and designer whose charm-filled, hands-on work recalls a lost innocence rarely seen in today’s fast-paced times. Hers is a world rich in storytelling; each illustration drawing the viewer in to take a closer look, resulting in an unexpected (yet always welcome) ‘smile in the mind’. Andrea’s handmade collages are assembled from her large collection of hand painted paper, giving new life to forgotten tactile beauty. It’s this one-of-a-kind charm seen throughout Andrea’s designs – whether collage, paper cut, or textile print – that capture the imagination and give it flight in ways that words often can’t. The latest range includes archival art prints, stationery, linen tea towels and canvas tote bags.
