“I’ve always enjoyed drawing, but after becoming a Christian at the age of 20, I changed so much I just didn’t know what I wanted to draw, and so I drew nothing for quite a while!
My first child was born several years later, and a young artist came to speak in our church about creativity I felt inspired. God awakened something in me and I began to teach myself to paint.
The message of the Father’s love was being preached in our church not long before and I wanted to share that love through my pictures. I try to spend some time in prayer and worship before I start a new painting. I continuously give my artistic gift to God as I want to know what he wants me to do with it. I love to share things that He is showing me, especially if it encourages or inspires people.”
