All About Andrea Mander
Andrea Mander is based in San Clemente, CA where she lives near the beach with her partner and her teenage son. She has worked primarily in copper repousse techniques for the past 16 years, but is also experienced with painting, drawing, sculpting, and has illustrated a children’s book. Much of her copper work is owned by private collectors and has been commission based. She has contributed individual pieces to group exhibits, most notably “The 45 Show”; curated by Michael Massenburg in 2011. This is the first public showing of a collection of her personal works.
Ms. Mander believes creative expression to be therapeutic for overcoming stress and trauma in her own life, and she hopes to impart a sense of healing through her art for others. Her purpose is to guide you to a deeper understanding of the experience of love, in all of its forms. She finds inspiration living a peaceful life near the beach where she swims, stand up paddleboards, and enjoys epic sunsets.
Andrea holds a Bachelor of Science in Health Management, and dedicates her time implementing population level mental health and wellbeing programs to help people cope with stress, build resilience skills, and manage crises. Following certification in Domestic Violence Advocacy, she is an active volunteer with a local domestic violence shelter, promoting prevention programs throughout Orange County. She is currently pursuing Yoga Teacher Certification. Namaste.
