Thanks for taking the time to learn more about me. My name is Andrea, and I am a former educator
and graphic artist. After instructing Kindergarteners for seven years, I have taken leave to care for a
terminally ill parent. Each day brings a new lesson in compassion and patience.
My interests include writing, animals, computers, meditation, e-bay, and collecting mouse-drawn
graphics. I have written and illustrated two books, encouraging children to develop their own unique
abilities. My pets are a great source of peace and devotion to me. Currently, I care for four cats. I'm
online a lot. Graphic design has become an outlet for relieving stress, while providing artwork for my
visitors to enjoy.
I love collecting "Hello Kitty" items. She symbolizes generosity, innocence, kindness, and most
importantly, friendship! Hello Kitty is the most popular of Sanrio's characters, as well as their
worldwide representative. She is best known for the red bow worn by her left ear.
I find myself drawn to the study of spirituality. I've been experimenting with guided meditation and yoga.
As I continue to grow within, I am discovering a more peaceful existence.
