Andreea Murgu

Andreea Murgu grew up in Vancouver, BC, where her family settled after emigrating from Romania. She moved to Nova Scotia in 2011 to attend NSCAD University where she earned a double major in Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing and Textiles/Fashion.

Her Grandmother had a great love of crafts, especially textiles, a few pieces of which Andreea has inherited over the years. These special pieces sparked a fascination and obsession with collecting domestic textiles.

A large part of Andreea’s work revolves around sentimental objects and ancient and historical techniques from around the world. She is inspired by nature, history, agriculture, rituals, and what cultivates a sense of home. Andreea lives and works close to the earth in the Annapolis Valley.
