Spartina 449 is now a multi-million dollar company with store locations all over the world—including a location in downtown Charleston. Their current logo was designed by Andrea during the early stages of the company. Andrea’s product designs, design work, and logo for Spartina 449 can still be found in stores around the globe.
Andrea has had the honor and privilege of being featured in Southern Lady Magazine on behalf of her business, Letter Décor Signature Collection, which is a company that she has launched and in which she has created a myriad of custom-made paintings and handlettered pieces for various clients across the United States.
