art speaks when words are unable to explain

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and when words are limited, art speaks.

It was in the darkest moments of my life, when I couldn’t express my pain in words, and I had no more tears to cry, that I would sit down and paint. It was through those sessions that I began to connect with the heart of God, not only for me, but for everyone needing an infusion of hope. Painting began to bring freedom & joy to my heart as I would encounter the love of God through my art. 

Art is an expression of the soul. It can be a spiritual encounter and if you allow it, these images and words will take you beyond your mind and move your very heart. The goal for my art is to enable others to envision their futures filled with hope and goodness.  I want my art to inspire vision, instill hope, and remind people of the good plans God has in store for them. That’s why each of my paintings has a powerful, life-giving word that accompanies it because I’ve come to realize that what we believe about ourselves and our circumstances shape our lives and future. 

I hope as you browse my work and read the descriptions of my paintings that you are inspired to live your life full of hope and expectation!
