An artist, choreographer and filmmaker, she leaves behind one son with her husband of over 30 years.

Jo Andres, filmmaker, choreographer and wife of actor Steve Buscemi, has died, a source close to the family confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter. A cause of death has not been stated. She was 64.

Andres was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1954 and later moved to New York City, where she began performing at the off-off-Broadway theater the Performing Garage. In 1996, her short film Black Kites, which she wrote and directed, played at several film festivals including Sundance, Berlin and Toronto.

Andres worked as an editor on Buscemi's short film What Happened to Pete in 1992.

She was also an artist, and a number of her works can be viewed on her website.

Andres married Buscemi in 1987, and the couple have one son, Lucian. 

A private memorial service was reportedly held last week in New York.
