Andrea Innocent loves drawing. She loves making pictures. Digital or analog. She started her career in fashion and textiles, before moving into photography, animation and interactive media. It wasn't until she moved to Japan that she rediscovered her love of telling stories through pictures. Her work combines a strong sense of colour and graphics, blended with photographic and textural elements to create curious collages and characters.
Joining the Jacky Winter Group in 2007, Andrea's clients have included Melbourne Recital Centre, Libra Hearts, Toyota Corolla, Cadbury Australia, Rolling Stone Magazine, Nylon Magazine US, The Age, Weekend Australia Magazine, Clemenger BBDO and many others. She currently shares a Melbourne studio with the lovely and talented Cat Rabbit, Callum Addis and Lauren Nicholson and her Cardigan Corgi Pickles McGerkin.
