Andrea Joseph is an artist and illustrator from South Wales now living and drawing in High Peak. Her work focuses on every day subject matter, making the mundane memorable. A book illustrator by trade, she has worked in numerous children’s books, cookery books and other publications. In 2013 she had a book, Andrea’s Book, published about her own work.
Her work is created with pens, color pencil, gouache and collage. She creates posters, info graphics and maps using these techniques. She will always be known as a ballpoint pen artist, even though she no longer uses them since she is now focused on colored pencil illustrations and painting portraits.
Andrea is also an arts practitioner. She works with charities that work with vulnerable adults, and in prisons across the North West. She also runs drawing events, Drink & Draw, in the High Peak.
