Andrea Myslivcova Attieh
Born in 1978 in Czech into multi-artistic/business family. It was only natural that all those diverse influences eventually fused and found their way to be the heart of anything that I do and venture into nowadays.
My early "bohemian years" consisted of studying fashion design, modelling throughout most of the high school and trying to get a taste of every experience within reach. After that I went on to discover the world of marketing and business affairs, the field in which I subsequently worked for about 4 years and had a chance to gain great combo experience in marketing, administration, strategic planing and business events organization as well as to work with many international companies.
Although I enjoyed all the business hype, I had this ever present need to express myself through art and because I though I have to concentrate on one thing at the time to excel at it, I found myself constantly jumping between the business and art world. At last I realized ... there is no "business without art" and "art without business". Well the apple did not fall far from the tree :-) after all.
My art-style developed over period of years while experimenting with many different mediums and techniques, where eventually mixed media on canvas became my favourite and my style is undeniably rooted in fashion world – the place full of colours, textures, patterns and layers.
After moving to Amman in 2006, the cultural diversity flamed up and broadened my creativity and entrepreneurial spirit. Together with my husband Firas we came up with several business concepts that were perfect for Jordanian fairly unexplored market. From creating kitchen/furniture power house (Andrea's) with selected imported brands and outstanding service to organising various art events and activities.
