Andrea Lewin Wendel's mission is to create pieces with a depth of design, by the hand of the artist and to inspire people to live creatively by fusing beauty and purpose.
For over 25 years Andrea has been in the business of adding the extra touches of style for residential homes as well as commercial properties.
As an Illustration major at Moore College of Art in Philadelphia, drawing and painting was her first step in an artist’s career. Hand painting fabric, furniture and murals took her work across the USA.
With an overwhelming desire to weld, Andrea moved into sculpture, creating large totemic pieces in wood and steel, incorporating stone, glass and a multitude of other materials. She was represented in galleries in Aspen, CO and Santa Fe, NM. Her work is included in many prominent art collections across the country.
Clients started to commission pieces of furniture based on the elements seen in her sculpture. Andi-Le (custom) was launched in 2011 to develop a creative partnership, encouraging clients to have fun with ideas, and placing their own personal stamp on each piece.
The furniture portfolio concentrates on tables, consoles and benches. The strong components blend patterns along with textures and materials. Andrea merges old world traditions with a modern aesthetic, fusing creativity with functionality, and then, emerging with a usable work of art.
The Inspiration for the Andi-Le aesthetic developed with an obsession for indigenous cultures and their art, textures and ceremonies, a passion for nature and the outdoors and a curious eye.
Andi-Le is the foundation for Andi-Le Aspen products. These are not custom but created based on the whims of Andrea. One of it’s kind or of a small production, these accent pieces, accessories and serve ware, came from Andrea’s need to bring beauty and purpose together in the Andi-Le style.
