Andrea Rhude is a traditional illustrator based in Riverhead, New York. Her work is strongly rooted in fantasy, folklore, and fable with a dash of surrealism where appropriate. She graduated from Pratt Institute in 1998 (communication design) and ended up working for an interior design company creating murals, room color pallets, and even doing construction work. Her art work has been in several open call shows, and Dragon Con 25. Andrea is now pursuing her first love and is available for book covers, cards, rpg work, and interesting commissions of all kinds.
