Andrea Lyons


Andrea Lyons during her exhibition at Cerulean Arts

This year I have focused on writing, illustrating, and publishing a children’s book about my youngest granddaughter, Ruby Green and her older brother, my grandson, Eli Green. The book is called “Ruby Green, Hip Hop Queen.” The illustrations show Ruby and Eli practicing and performing their dance with other supporting characters. It is the story about their love of dance. Ruby wants to do whatever her older brother Eli does, and he is a great dancer. They both attend Philly MoveMakers School for Hip Hop dancing. They even have a Hip Hop Dance Recital at the Performance Garage on Brandywine Street, a well-known establishment in Philly.
Three other watercolor and gouache paintings are from a much earlier book called,” Jacob’s Window”. When I wrote and illustrated it , my eldest grandson, Jacob Mark was only five. He starts college this summer. “Jacob’s Window”, is about the importance of family to a child. I never tried to publish it. The pandemic created an opportunity to go back once again to writing and illustrating children’s books. I enjoyed doing that.
