Andrea is a writer, filmmaker, advocate and firm believer in everyone’s right to be free and live happily and in peace within their (healthy) communities without fear of reprisals or discrimination.
She is the founder of the The ♥Oneness♥through♥Art Movement; she created the Movement out of love and admiration for her daughter and all she has overcome.
Oneness Through Art Productions uses the global language of the Arts to bring people together through Film and Creative Expression. Our resident Artist Florentina, a young lady with special needs who found her voice through art, is the inspiration behind the Movement.
“For a person who is impacted greatly by Autism and related medical conditions, and who has faced discrimination from other parents, schools and within society as a whole ~ Art has been her saving grace. Art truly is her voice and at the end of the day, like everyone else, she wants to have friends, have good health, be understood and welcomed within her community.” ~ Andrea
Through the Arts, we create “Mindfulness” opportunities to opening hearts, genuine smiles of understanding and acceptance that people are people and are all deserving of friends & love.
The “Art of Connection” Events benefit Organizations such as Autism Unites, that provide Free or Low Cost Inclusive Community Opportunities with a focus on the Arts, Music and Outdoor activities for families with special needs.
