Andrea Chebeleu is the artist and entrepreneur behind A Work of Heart Studio in San Jose, California.
A creative innovator from a very young age, Andrea enjoys a challenge and most of all figuring out how to make art with what’s on hand.
As an art instructor, her greatest joy comes from leading students through a process that, on the surface, looks complex but is achieved in simple steps. Andrea takes the fear out of trying in her approach of "first, not only." While it may be the first time you’ve tried this, it’s not your only time.
Andrea enjoys mixed media, art journaling, watercolor and sketch journaling but when asked to pick a favorite her response is evasively "what day is it?" meaning it changes all the time.
A Work of Heart studio has operated in a commercial space open to the public since 2001 and hosts a variety of in-person workshops, taught not only by Andrea but visiting instructors from all over the world. The storefront contains a carefully curated selection of art materials and vintage finds to inspire your creativity.
In 2020, A Work of Heart has taken its classes online and now offers a variety of workshops, retreats and events virtually - both live and pre-recorded.
