The fine arts have always been 'my thing' with gifts in both music and visual arts. I taught high school art a few years before settling down to raise a family. For the next 22 years I had my own singing telegram business that was well known throughout NW Ohio. I had no time for art while home schooling and operating a home business. When my sons married, I decided to get back into painting. I started by doing murals, but, because of the aggravation of working around other people's schedules and climbing ladders, I decided it was more pleasant to work in the serenity of my own studio.
Art has become a very spiritual process to me, with each new work bringing me closer to His beauty and design. I see our Creator's fingerprint in vivid colors, designs of nature, the wisp of a hair, the fine details of a facial expression, etc. Art has become an expression of worship as I study creation around me. I believe that art should inspire, provoke positive thinking, and say something about life. I know there are all sorts of bad things out there already, so my job is to take us to a better place through inspirational images to bring us all closer to our Creator, Jesus Christ. I want my art to inspire and point people to our loving Father and Lord, Jesus Christ. Shalom!
