Andrea is the daughter and grand-daughter of artists and architects. Growing up, she was surrounded by strong willed artists, and grew to hold beauty, balance and a commitment to art as the guiding forces in her own life.

When her grandfather, Alexander Stoller sold half of his land in the Berkshire mountains to cast one of his largest marble sculptures in bronze, it was acquired by the American Embassy in Paris.

Andrea attended the opening ceremony, and shortly after, captivated by the magnitude of culture available in Europe, uprooted from her native California and moved to Paris. The France adventure spanned 27 years before she moved back to her much loved California in 2013.

 

Andrea has a bachelor of Arts from UCLA, and while in Paris, she studied under acclaimed Beaux Art teacher Michele Massiou for over 10 years. 

 

She began exhibiting regularly at the Grand Marche d’Art Contemporain in Paris, before becoming a permanent artist with Galerie BE Espace also in Paris for 10 years. Her work has been published by Les Editions Arcadia in France. In California, she was a featured artist at Toadfish Contemporary Gallery in Sausalito, has shown with Desta gallery in Mill-Valey, Gray Loft Gallery in Oakland and was a member artist with SFMoma Artist’s gallery in San Francisco.
