« Back to Artists
I am a Christian artist, living in Cornwall with my husband, Richard and our four children. I have been painting and drawing for most of my life and have a BA(Hons) in Graphic Design and Illustration as well as a P.G.C.E which qualifies me to teach in Art and Design.
I generally paint portraits and landscapes, but more recently I have been experimenting with some mixed-media pieces that have been inspired by my Christian faith.
It is my hope that the subject of my artwork will inspire people to look more deeply into the things of God, whether it’s through inspirational Bible verses, the beauty of creation or the emotion portrayed in humanity. I love painting; it refreshes me and brings me great joy. I believe that God has blessed me with a gift and it is my hope that the subject of my artwork will also be a blessing to everybody that views my work.
In June 2010, some missionaries from our church gave a presentation on the work that they had been doing on the Burma/Thai border. When I saw this image I was totally blown away by the beauty of the scene.
It was as if you could hear the girls' whispers and feel their devotion to God and I felt compelled to recreate the scene in a painting. From left to right, these girls are called, Naw CheeChee, Popa daw & Naw Salaboo.
