Andrea was born in Tegucigalpa, Honduras and her beginnings as an artist were from a very young age. She always had colored pencils and drawing paper by her side. She made her very first mural at the age of 13 for the Royal Kids of America San Pedro Sula School and her first job as an illustrator in Calderon Publicidad company. However, there were some bumps along the road, when she started high school she became the subject of bullying, but she used this negative energy to help grow her talent. When her classmates bothered her, she took refuge in her drawings.
Andrea sold her first painting at the age of 15, then she followed her passion for comics and did some professional ones with her sister. known as MK Joe who is a professional illustrator.
. Andrea was brave enough to continue her art career studying at Savannah College of Art & Design we’re she got a 70% scholarship. Where she studied illustration for a year. She continued studying graphic design when she returned to Mexico and at the same time worked as an illustrator for several foreign companies, illustrating children’s e-books and participating in comic creation contests with her sister.
After Mexico, she moved to the islands of Roatan, a short boat ride away from the honduran coast. Living on this island is something that she will always remember as her beginnings as a muralist.
One day she decided to put her easel on the street in the West End of the Island and started painting in front of many people so they would know who she was. Then, a small restaurant called ‘Off the Hook’ hired her to paint murals, signs, artistic paintings on wood, tables ,and countless things. They gallowed her to transform their restaurant into an art gallery.
After the word spread, a lot of places began hiring her, different restaurants, bars, Dive shops and more to paint them beautiful murals to brighten up their place. As her amount of work grew the people from the island recognized her as an artist and her works were listed, the population of the island recognized me as “Andrea the Artist”. She also worked with a famous artist from Honduras next to a rock band. She painted several times live while they played music. It was one of the best
experiences of her life combining music and art.
Since then, she has continued her art career as a muralist in Mexico and now, in the United States. This has given her the opportunity to also present her works in art galleries at Miami, Melbourne Fl, Washington DC, Italy, Reston VA, Woodbridge VA, Honduras, Spain and more. Then she realized she needed to improve so she decided to keep her studies as a Fine Artist in Milan Art Institute.

About Andrea Mystic art
Mystic waves express the spiritual side of art, the seek of inspiration and pure emotion.
This adventure, which starts from the experience of the soul stripped of earthly attachment, and ends with the beholder feeling a divine presence and an out of this world inspiration when seeing the artwork is just a reflection of the artist’s pure nature.
Inspired by the ocean waves as a symbol of constant movement, just like the energy that lies beyond what we see; she uses different techniques and textures to make her work look dynamic and with training, just as waves rumbling in the depths of the mind’s imagination.
As an artist, Andrea describes herself as a compassionate person who likes to portray her feelings in her artwork, reaching out to her viewer’s hearts through her thoughtful and beautiful paintings of birds and animals in their natural hábitat, hoping these paintings can encourage others to appreciate and protect all living beings, as a moral duty to make the world a better place.
