Andrea Giaier was raised in a typical Midwestern town just outside of Detroit, Michigan. From an early age, she developed a deep connection to nature, which later blossomed into a profound admiration, respect, and concern for the environment and the collective future of those who inhabit the earth. Andrea currently lives in Kathmandu, Nepal, and has taught and created in Washington, Oregon, California, Montana, Honduras, Sri Lanka, and Guatemala over the past 15 years.
As an artist and an educator, Andrea focuses on collaborative, performative, and Social Practice Art, which allows people from diverse backgrounds to find their visual voice, empower themselves and create positive change through meaningful art.
Andrea received a Bachelor of Fine Art at Montana State, a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Washington, and a Master of Arts in Teaching from the Vermont College of Fine Arts.
