Biography

Andrea Willette’s work is often anthropomorphic and amorphous in form. Taking influence from time, entropy, growth, movement, lifespans / life cycles and language, she creates her own visual contemplation of these themes and ideas; a personal translation of the transient into something physical and tangible.

Andrea currently lives and works in Milton Keynes, UK
