Life After Tyler: Andrea Pippins

Join us as Andrea Pippins shares her stories of creative "Life After Tyler."  Her books will be available for sale and signing after the talk.

Andrea is a designer, illustrator, and educator who began harnessing her artistic talent into a BFA in graphic design and later earned her MFA at Temple University, Tyler School of Art. 

She is a tastemaker, an artist, a designer, and an educator with an eye for bold colors and funky patterns. 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. 

In November 2015, Andrea published her first book, I Love My Hair, with Random House Children’s Books/Schwartz & Wade. I Love My Hair is a coloring book featuring her illustrations celebrating various hairstyles and textures. Her second book, Becoming Me, just released this month, for young women to color, doodle, and brainstorm their way to a creative life.

Andrea is based in the Washington, D.C. area, but currently in Stockholm.
