Hey there, I’m Andra!
I create art with the aim of having a positive impact on children.
Each of my whimsical designs are coupled with quotes to inspire kids.
I create art with the aim of having a positive impact on children. The whimsical designs I create are coupled with quotes to inspire kids. The defining theme throughout my work can be summed up with the Oscar Wilde quote, "Be Yourself. Everyone else is already taken."
I believe that children should embrace their uniqueness, tap into their imagination and revel in whatever it is that they love to do. In essence, my hope is that they enjoy the wonder of the world as they travel through this period of "just being a kid", hence the name Wonderkid Art.
I create my designs using a mix of gouache paint, watercolor pencil and archival ink pens. I draw inspiration from my son Niki, as well as from my nephews, nieces and godchildren. Their playful and magical nature stir the ideas that go into creating Wonderkid Art designs.
One of my favorite quotes is "To those whom much is given, much is expected." I believe in giving back to those who are less fortunate, so a percentage of all proceeds from Wonderkid Art will be donated to charities that support neglected, abused and impoverished children.
I live in Chicago with my husband Erik and our five-year old son Nikolas.
