Hi! My name is Andrea Silva. I am a graphic designer, artist, and illustrator pursuing a love for art that I've had since childhood. As a native Kansan, I now currently reside in Nashville, Tennessee. I graduated in 2010 with a BA in Graphic Design and minors in Painting and Music from Tabor College in Hillsboro, KS.
"As a graphic designer, illustrator and artist I believe in the power of beautiful images to tell a story."
While in college I worked part-time at Great Plains Christian Radio, KJIL, a Christian radio station covering most of Kansas and parts of Oklahoma, Texas and Colorado. I soon discovered a love for radio, which led to my accepting a full-time position there after graduating. I was able to work as their graphic designer in house for 8 years and I continue on in that role remotely.
In 2016, my travels took me to McAllen, Texas where I spent three and a half years as a graphic designer and radio host at 96.9 KVMV, a Christian radio station covering the Rio Grande Valley and parts of Mexico.
Though radio continues to be a big part of who I am, in 2019 I left my full-time position in the radio world to focus on my career as a graphic artist. Much of what I learned in sound design over the past decade has also carried over to the graphic design world, particularly as I continue growing my skills in motion design.
When I'm not behind my computer or at my easel creating you might find me outdoors exploring with my dear husband of 5 years (and counting) and my toddler. Life with them is full and rewarding. As a foodie and health nut, in addition you might find me whipping up something tasty and healthy in the kitchen. I also will take any opportunity to travel and have enjoyed trips to Europe, the Bahamas, and across the U.S.
Though I love being an artist, illustrator, and graphic designer, my true identity lies in my relationship with Jesus Christ and learning to follow Him. Any skills I possess I realize come from Him alone.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by my website! It would be an honor to work with you on your next project whether you need a design for print, motion graphics for a website or logo animation, or personalized artwork to give as a gift or keepsake. Let me know how I can serve you!
