    I am an educator and have used Brian Andreas' "stories"

    I am an educator and have used Brian Andreas' "stories" in teacher trainings throughout my career. His way of capturing the the essence of common memories and experiences is both unique and familiar. He is truly talented!

    Unique & Inspirational Art and Writing

    This was my first purchase of Brians work. I now own his art as well and proudly display his delightful and universal perspectives. He writes about yesterday, today, and tommorrow recapturing life through the eyes of a child and sometimes a grown up. It prompts me to remember my own sweet childhood experiences and relive them as though they occured only yesterday. Truly wonderful writing.
