ARTISTIC PROCESS & MATERIALS

The process begins with curiosity about life and change. I choose materials that will express the vision.

I feel so honored to be able to paint. It’s my life’s focus to make art that speaks to the world of a loving God.

The Intention

My intention in making art is always to be open to what God wants to speak through the work. I simply allow it.

The Discoveries

Sometimes I have no idea what I am painting. If I am patient, it is always revealed. I love being immersed in it all.

The Experience

Painting a series is full of miracles, revealing a path to growth and a generative way of living. It transforms me.

The Healing

Making the work is healing, as is living with the paintings. The art carries its own magnificent energy, surprising even me.

 

 
It’s so healing to work with these images.

MATERIALS & mEDIA

 

I work with only the most excellent materials: professional grade acrylic paint, ink, watercolor, pencil, marker, metallic, iridescent media as well as binding and grounding materials for texture.

 

Size

 Size options are infinite with custom commissions. The process is very much like having a dress or a suit cut and sewn to order.

Placement & Installation

Shipping & Delivery

 Paper can be rolled and shipped easily. Stretched canvas can be dismounted and rolled to be reassembled upon arrival, birchwood requires crating and special care. I can help with it all.

 One of my very favorite things in the world is an installation of my work. I work with the very best installers and supervise the placement.

I fell in love with a painting called “The Prayer.” I am proud to say that I am the owner of that original painting, every time I see it, it makes me very happy. The colors are vibrant, the mood of the painting is bold, and the vaseful of flowers in the painting look forever fresh and beautiful. The piece is also timeless.
