Jeanette Andrews


Jeanette Andrews is hailed as one of the most innovative illusionists in the world today and she has presented commissioned and site-specific for The Smithsonian's Cooper Hewitt, the International Museum of Surgical Science, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.

Andrews presented her first magic performance at age four, 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.    

Andrews has staged hundreds of sold-out and standing-room-only performances for Fortune 500 companies, theaters and universities across the United States, including Infiniti, Kraft, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Lyric Opera & Chicago Ideas Week.  Her work explores how illusions construct reality and highlights astonishing aspects of everyday life via moments of the seemingly impossible. She is a prior artist in residence for High Concept Labs and The Institute for Art and Olfaction. Illusion is Ms. Andrews’ life’s work and her performances have been praised by the Chicago Tribune, PBS and the New York Times.
