I’m Andrea Wetzels, a 21-year-old student from The Netherlands. Currently I am studying Communicaton – International Event, Music and Entertainment Studies at the Fontys Academy for Creative Industries in Tilburg.

I believe that inspiration is everywhere: in the faces of the street, music, art and people. If you look at the world from a playful perspective, you will find happiness in the smallest of things. Open your eyes, look around you and pour your heart into what you love.

Music, art, fashion and lifestyle are the things that I am interested in most. As a maker and listener, music’s had a big part of my heart ever since I was a toddler. Growing up in a musical family, there wasn’t a chance I wouldn’t be passionate about music. With a love for many genres (indie, electronic, acoustic, soul), I am constantly looking for new bands and exploring all kinds of music.

Art is a very broad subject for me, as I feel like there are a lot of different kind of art forms. Photography for example is an art form which I absolutely love and I’ve been practicing since 2011. I especially like fashion and portrait photography, but I also have some experience with music photography (click here to take a look). Not only do I get excited about photographing, I’m also very into filming and editing. I get inspired by everything around me and make creative content out of it. Next to photography and cinematography, I also enjoy designing, both digitally and on paper. Recently I found out that illustrating is something I love to do in my spare time as well. Not only do I create art myself, I also get inspired by classical and modern artists I read about and see work of online.

Another art form I am very interested in is fashion. Everyone around us wears clothing they pick from their closets. I wonder why they made these choices and why they bought the pieces they wear. Also, lots of fashion designers create clothing which I could also refer to as straight up art! I feel like clothing is a way to represent yourself as an individual and that’s why it’s so important to me.

Last but not least, “lifestyle” is also something that can be very inspiring. For me, lifestyle contains a mix of: travelling, discovering new things, thinking about social ‘issues’, interesting people, food and so much more! Life can be beautiful & inspiring, you just have to open your eyes to see it.
