MyKids Unite is a female driven cartoon series featuring the Rockin' MyKids Band animated music videos. The MyKids Unite Team Celebrate Friendships for All, Kindness to Animals and a Healthy Planet Earth. Our illustrated book, What's a Bafoodle? Celebrating Friendships for All! will be rewritten for one of the episodes!
"Dragon Dancers, Words & Art" is an illustrated book she is writing about her life with her daughter Florentina, a savant artist with special needs. This visual book journey's through the adoption of Florentina from Romania, her vaccine injury after arriving in the USA, *discrimination and abuse within the public school system and ultimately rising above to stay true to who they are by finding their voice through art, writing and forgiveness. Scheduled for release Fall 2017.
She is a descendant of Dr. John Clarke, 1609 - 1676. Soul Freedoms, a Narrative of his extraordinary life and personal sacrifices to secure the Royal Charter of 1663 affording Religious and Civil Freedoms for the Colony of Rhode Island which changed world history, is in development.
Known for her mind-boggling creative energy, intuitive empathic soul and unwavering tenacity in standing up for what she believes in. Inspired by her daughter's art and ability to overcome discrimination by staying true to who she is, she founded the *Oneness through Art Movement in 2006.
*"I had to make a decision, was I going to spend my life being angry at the persons who have wronged my daughter? Or am I going to forgive, rise above and channel that intense energy into my creativity and send something positive out into the world? I decided it was easier and more productive to follow Florentina's happy go-lucky lead."
"I have been very fortunate over the years to partner with incredibly talented, heart-centered people. I don't believe in coincidence, but I do believe that the right people show up at the right time. I am always open to collaborating on current and new projects, all you have to do is reach out."
It is with unwavering passion, conviction of truth, heart centered confidence and old fashion stubbornness I will use my voice even when I am shaking or collapsed in anguish and tears. I will not yield to silence, I matter. And so do you. ~ Andrea M Clarke
