For snippets of inspiration, encouragement, and what I'm up to check out my Instagram gallery.
Grand vistas, tiny details, things in process or with potential, ruins that speak of past stories, and beauty in all its forms have always caught my attention. Gathering moment and making art are things I've instinctively done since I was little. Now that I am an adult and have built a career I am finding the need to create welling up inside of me again. The process of making art is healing and restorative and I pray that the finished pieces will be a blessing to others...wether they spark conversation, add beauty, spark emotions or memories, or cause you to look at something differently, etc.
This is a section that will perpetually be 'under construction' as I keep making art and adding new images here...check back :)
Some of these works are for sale as originals and prints.
Please contact me for details or if you'd like to commission a piece.
In the spring of 2019 I decided to sign up for Donna Downey's 100 Faces class and challenge to improve my skills and overcome my fears of painting faces.
These oil paintings are on 6x6 inch canvas boards and can be framed.
They will be for sale once the 100th piece is completed.
Enjoy watching the collection grow.
Originals $125 + shipping
6x6 prints $30 + shipping
Larger prints and framing also available.
Contact me to work out the details.
Inspired by the 100 Faces project came a birthday idea...
personalized cards with charcoal portraits :)
Bible Art Journaling
In 2009 God started encouraging me to connect with Him in prayer and quiet times by using my art. This book was such an encouragement:
Then my sister and her fiancé asked me to paint a visual prayer for their wedding in 2009 about the deep love of God and a follow-up painting about the fruit of the Spirit in 2012.
And then I happened upon a few Bible Art Journaling challenges by Rebekah Jones that inspired me to keep connecting with God through my art.
In the gallery below you will see parts of this journey and I hope it will inspire you to connect with God in ways that are personal and special to you.
