Andrea Realpe combines her experience as a professional artist and her degree in psychology and studio art to author, and illustrate, children’s books that inspire empathy, self acceptance, and emotional awareness. 

Andrea’s art is on display in private and corporate collections worldwide and has been featured on the Rachel Ray Show and People.com. Her work was also used in the Parent Resource Book for Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Schools. 

When she isn’t writing, Andrea Loves spending time with her husband and son, practicing yoga, painting and drinking tea.
