Andrea Pippins


Andrea Pippins

Andrea Pippins is a designer and educator with a penchant for cool and personality as warm as her Brazilian roots.

Andrea’s first glimpse into the design world began when she encountered a television profile about a magazine art director, she then saw Halle Berry’s role as an art director in the movie Boomerang and was hooked.

Andrea began harnessing her artistic talent into a BFA in graphic design and later earned her MFA at Temple University’s Tyler School of Art. Andrea’s love for design grew as she learned more about what it means to be a designer and what true design is all about.

Her work can be seen in magazines and on television as well as on clothing and stationery. In addition to designing and illustrating, Andrea curates her art and design blog, Fly, a weekly resource to inspire young women to pursue their creative passions. She also produces digital and screen-printed artwork in which she explores her love of color, pattern and texture while interpreting her personal experiences as an African American woman.

You can find Andrea designing in Baltimore, teaching in a classroom at Stevenson University and blogging or dancing in her living room with the samba music way up.
