Andrea Floren Andrea Floren is an illustrator and designer. Born and raised in the Great Plains of South Dakota, she hails from an industrious family of self-starters, craftspeople, musicians, eccentrics, inventors and collectors. Dreams and adventure took her to both coasts, overseas and below the Border before settling in Denver, Colorado with her family. Her experience comes from a blended background of advertising, design studios and leading art workshops in preschools. She admires curiousity, whimsy, thoughtfulness, delight and the courage to be true to you. She loves creating with children and working in any medium but has soft spots for creating art with natural elements, cultural meaning and storytelling.
