“When it’s over, I want to say:
all my life
I was a bride married
to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking
the world into my arms…”
– Mary Oliver

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.

    …and such a lot of broohaha over the Gates. Well enough, but Colbert’s photos at the nomadic museum? Not much press — I suspect they are the un-sung masterpieces in the city right now.
    Will report back…
