Andrea is a masterful artist who translates her beautiful creations into wearable art. Her luxurious Italian silk scarves are not only beautiful but feel amazing on the skin. My favorite scarf of hers is Iris.
I urge you to Purchase with a Purpose and snag a gorgeous silk scarf for yourself, a loved one, or both of you. You can find her masterpieces on the Kuel Shop today!
KUELLIFE: What type of business do you own/run?
ANDREA: I create beautiful silk scarves from my artwork. The scarves are made in Italy.
KUELLIFE: What prompted you or drove you to become an entrepreneur? When?
ANDREA: As an artist, I’ve always been an entrepreneur. I always had a job though and got tired of executing other people’s ideas.
KUELLIFE: What turns you on most about your gig?
ANDREA: Making my artwork. I love using different media and creating something new. I also love making women look and feel amazing wearing one of my scarves.
KUELLIFE: What’s your biggest struggle?
ANDREA: Just one? Not having the support. I’d love to have a partner but not in a financial position to do so yet.
KUELLIFE: What is your biggest fear as an entrepreneur? How do you work through it?
ANDREA: Fear? Not being able to support myself by not getting enough sales. I work through it by moving forward, I carry on. I look for freelancing gigs retouching.
KUELLIFE: How do you measure your success?
ANDREA: Well, since I left my full-time job as a high-end photo-retoucher, I am extremely happy. I am doing my own thing. Happiness equals success.
KUELLIFE: Finally, what advice would you give other women about taking an entrepreneurial path?
ANDREA: Be prepared. It’s a long, lonely struggle. Like all of us, we hope to come out on top.
