Andrea Hempstead Headshot

Andrea Hempstead

Andrea Hempstead has always loved interacting with the world around her on a path of discovery. Andrea’s experience as a graphic designer can be seen in her illustrations, with her bold use of colors, patterns and expert composition. Andrea loves to use pop-ups and movables to engage and delight the reader as a part of the story. Using her UI/UX background, she thinks about how to involve the reader in the story and develops these concepts into pop-ups that create an experience for her audience. She is continually inspired by the world around her and tries to be innovative in all of her illustration, design and interactive solutions.

Recent exhibitions have centered around her children’s book illustrations and pop-up book art. Her pop-up book, Stickly-Prickly and Slow-Solid, A Pop-Up Adventure is a finalist for the 2018 Meggendorfer Prize for Artists Books.

Hempstead received her BS in Graphic Design from North Carolina State University School of Design, her MBA from LeMoyne College and her MFA in Graphic Design from Marywood University. She has over 15 years of real-world experience in web design, UI/UX consulting, advertising and publication design.
