Andrea Valentini born and raised in Rhode Island USA, received both Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Interior Architecture degrees from (RISD). With more than 14 years of professional experience as a commercial and residential Interior Architect, receiving several awards for her interiors, she began to set her focus and explorations on "the object in space."
Intending to combine and expand her knowledge and experience as an artist/ designer, she has developed a body of work that is now a portfolio of product design being noticed both nationally and internationally. She is among a very select group of designers' chosen by the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum 2003 Triennial, "Inside Design Now" which represents the quality, range and vitality of current U.S. design practice today. She has also been nominated for a National Design Award in Product Design.
