At 18 year old, she went to New York to study at New York University and the Parson School of Design, and to study photography at the School of Fine Arts. While studying portrait photography with Professor Bob Lichtman at New York University, she, as one of the best students, was accepted into a famous photography studio, where she studied for two years. After studying in New York, Andrea moved to the fashion capital – Milan, where she devoted herself to men's fashion, and then returned to Munich, where she continued to engage in art photography, and 12 years ago she opened her studio in Grunwald, Germany. “Why Grunwald instead of New York,” she is asked again and again. Maybe it's time to get back to basic? "For personal reasons," says Andrea and adds, "Everything I wanted to do in New York, I have already done."
