My first love is God's word.. then comes my husband who inspired me to get painting with an easel right after our daughter was born in 2004 (like I had time:). However, you can find a painting here in my gallery called 'Dad's Art' that really started my love of art. As a child, I watched my dad create plein air paintings of places we were visiting and I would try sketching them. Since then, I've gone through many forms of art: twisting wire, knotting macrame, sequinning jeans, weaving pine needles, woodworking, crafting, decorating, quilting, scrapbooking, photography and more. I still love photographing everything and I've shared some photos I've taken to create some paintings (at the end of the images). Each painting portrays a scripture that has very special meaning to me and I try to tell you a little bit about the symbolism but there's so much more to say! Please feel free to email me and thank you for visiting my site and hope you are encouraged by God's awesome word and my interpretation of it.
