A conceptual thinker with a strong and versatile sense of design, style and color, Andi thrives on new and unique creative challenges. Observant, and highly sensitive to her surroundings, she sees beauty and is inspired by things other people don't often notice.
Andi's creative journey began with toddler classes at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Multifaceted and forward thinking, a diverse range of experiences over
35 years designing for the fashion, home furnishings, textile and giftware markets, enable Andi to adeptly create original concepts and designs for surface patterns and product lines across categories, from high end to mass market.
One benefit of a creative mind is you don't always know what or why something
will inspire a solution you aren't looking for at the time! Curious by suggestions to mass produce her "one-of-a-kind creations", hand sculpted pillows from up-cycled
100% cashmere sweaters, many with their own unique patterns and textures, Andi was nonetheless intrigued. Studying some photos of her original pillows, out of the
blue, it came to her. So began the development of CHC Trompé L'Oeil Collections,
a concept for printed pillows based on her originals.
Andi originally planned on having a website for consumers. After designing her first couple of trompé l'oeil collections, she soon realized her joy in designing, love of creative
concepts and years of experience are much better suited for creating unique custom
solutions for clients and their clients and customers.

Moxie Beshért Chief Delight & Inspiration. He and his feline sister are both rescues. Unlike Precious though, Moxie is always up for his tasks. Keeping up morale, insisting on exercise breaks, and simply being there, make him an ideal colleague! Like Precious, his curling up on soft pillows inspired one-of-a-kind, paw-made luxury pet pillow beds. Decorative border embellished pillows with a smooth center.
Precious, Directress of Catitude - Self determined, her responsibilities to include doing whatever..., whenever..., and then, only if she wants to! Her lack of professionalism, and constantly stretching over, or snoozing on unused cashmere pieces, did however inspire one-of-a-kind paw-made CHC Squeaky Pet Pillow Toys that human kids love too! Naturally, rather than play with, Precious prefers to take a nap on her CHC Squeaky Pet Pillow Toys.
