On my nightstand.

Here are the books I am enjoying right now:

Wondering Who You Are: A Memoir by Sonya Lea
A beautifully written, mind-blowing kind of love story written by my friend Sonya Lea about the loss of her husband’s memory after a traumatic brain injury. It’s tender and fierce and real and wise.

Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Illuminating, heart-breaking, beautifully written.

Art Before Breakfast: A Zillion Ways to be More Creative No Matter How Busy You Are by Danny Gregory
Inspiration for my art practice. I love how Danny makes it fun and easy.

Wear Gratitude (Like A Sweater): Art + Words to Inspire by Susa Talan
Gorgeous little gift book full of inspiring quotes and art. My friends are so talented!

The Crossroads of Should and Must by Elle Luna
This one gives you courage for whatever creative leap you are imagining.

Orchard House: How a Neglected Garden Taught One Family to Grow by Tara Austen Weaver
You might know Tara from her great blog, Tea and Cookies. I love how she weaves her personal story with the tangle of the garden and the shared vision she has with her family. Poignant and healing.

Full: How I Learned to Satisfy My Insatiable Hunger and Feed My Soul by Kimber Simpkins
My friend and longtime yoga teacher shares her story about healing her eating disorder through yoga and body love. Going to her classes has helped me be friendlier to my body as well. She is full of wisdom.

Books I am reading next:


Rising Strong: Been so excited to read my friend Brené Brown’s brand new book!


Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert
Best title ever. And one of my favorite writers.


Light is the New Black: A Guide to Answering your Souls Callings and Working Your Light by Rebecca Campbell
This is one of those books that Amazon suggested I read and for some reason it lit up as a big yes. It should be arriving today.

For my kids:


Sometimes I Feel Like a Fox by Danielle Daniel
Been loving this book! and choosing which totem animal is ours. Beautifully illustrated.


Hilda and the Midnight Giant by Luke Pearson
I usually don’t love graphic novels but this one really captured me. The illustrations are so magical.

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.

    Excellent site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get comments from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Appreciate it!
