Andrea is an East Coast work-at-home mom, artist and blogger living a creative life by the sea with her artist husband, folk artist mother and 11-year-old daughter.
In a former life, Andrea was a public art gallery educator by day and a rock and roll journalist by night. These days, she splits her time between writing, running an art studio, looking after her “mini-me” and maintaining KinderArt.com (an art lesson website she co-founded with her mom nearly 20 years ago).
She credits her daughter with teaching her how to “go with the flow” and how to work in small, quick bursts between play time, snack time and story time.
Being a parent has by far been her most creative endeavour yet.
Creativity is an unpredictable and sometimes elusive gal. People often expect to find her dressed up in a bright, flowing gown. But the truth is… most of the time she sits quietly in a watermelon-stained t-shirt, trying to find new ways to approach old quandaries.
Your challenge – should you choose to accept it – is to dig in, get messy and start colouring outside the lines.
