Artist Bio

Bowie, Maryland, native Andrea Pippins (BSFF13, BSFF14, BSFF15, BSFF16, BSFF17, BSFF18, BSFF19) studied at Temple University’s Tyler School of Art, where she earned a B.FA. in graphic design. She began her career as a graphic designer working for Hallmark Cards before transitioning to illustration work for cable television networks.  

After earning her M.F.A. at Temple, Pippins taught graphic design at both Stevenson University and the Maryland Institute College of Art. Since then, she has been working as a designer and illustrator on projects for ESPN, Five Below, Instagram, Sephora, Lincoln Center, Malala Fund, Nick Jr., the National Museum of African American History and Culture, and USPS.  

Pippins has also authored and illustrated several books, among them are I Love My Hair, a coloring book celebrating a variety of hairstyles and textures; Becoming Me, an interactive journal for young women; and We Inspire Me, a collection of essays and ideas to inspire the cultivation of a creative community. 

With a celebratory and bold visual style that utilizes vivid color, Pippins uses her work to propel her mission of empowering women and girls through creative expression.  

She lives in Stockholm, Sweden.
