dahlia creatures

It’s dahlia season again at Golden Gate Park. If you are anywhere near San Francisco, you must see them! Calling them flowers seems like an inadequate description. They are more like brilliantly painted creatures, with their many petaled heads like crazy mathematicians. You must see them for yourself.

And if you have always wished you could wear flowers on your fingers, now you can! The brilliant Angela Gwinner and her company Omondieu have made it possible.

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.
