MAGICIAN, ARTIST & SPEAKER
Jeanette Andrews was paid to do her first magic show at age six, began running her business that day and has never had another job since. Andrews dedicated her life to forging a new path, combining her specialized technical training in magic with contemporary art practice, psychology and science to become internationally recognized as a pioneer in her field. She is now one of the most sought-after performing artists in the country. Andrews uses sensory anomalies, art and scientific anecdotes to create luxurious magic performances that bridge everyday life to a special, heightened world. She loves creating experiences for audiences to engage with the impossible in fun, insightful, generous ways. Her performances are designed to provoke thought and wonder about the amazing aspects of the world.
