Andrea Hooge is an artist living and working out of her home studio in East Vancouver. She is often inspired by the nostalgia of vintage magazine and children's books, and her focus is mainly on creating figurative oil paintings and scratchboards. While many of her painted works are on wood or hardboard panel, she also creates wood and scratchboard cutouts to move away from conventional shapes. These have been made to stand alone or to overlap to create larger and more dynamic pieces.

Andrea attended the University of the Fraser Valley, where she received her Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Psychology and a minor in visual arts. Her work has been exhibited in various group shows in Vancouver, and she has had five solo exhibitions, titled "Dolly," "Scratch," "Menno Kitty," "Easter Eggs," and "Toy Babies" at Hot Art Wet City.
