Andrea White

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

Does anybody have any info on Andrea White, who illustrated a lot of stuff for Von in the early 90s (Under The Gun single cover, Postcards From Above The Chemist illustrations, etc)? Where is she now, has she done any other illustration work, is she still connected to the band/Von in any capacity?
I really liked her stuff.

I've always expected "her" to be just an alias of Von ...

Scottish Baby Names Meaning:
In Scottish Baby Names the meaning of the name Andreas is: Manly. From the Greek Andrew. Has long been a popular Scottish name, because St. Andrew is the Patron Saint of Scotland after whom the town of St Andrews was named.
In Greek Andreas or Andrew is mainly manly name. Throwing just a clue about a guess of the identity of that work. ;D

"White" also contains the letters W-H-T and we know who's initials they are.

It's all coming together.

Nope she/he is def not her/him :D was googling at 5 in the morning about her and the oil paintings of her got nothing to do with the art pieces we talk about ;D
I am sure someone who knows more than me about art will tell surely that this is not the same artist only from the works
There are some around as i know :innocent: :bat:

I'm not sure, but I think she also designed the gatefold sleeve for Rose Of Avalanche´s 'Never Another Sunset' album... I'll have a look later.

Yes indeed, as well as a La Costa Rasa album. In fact that one's interesting because of another Sisters-family connection: "recorded by Claire Shearsby..."

Andy Mills of La Costa Rasa and Claire were a couple for a while. I still see him around Leeds, I think he might work at the Uni.
