the artist in me.


I am not sure all of you know my story as an artist but it didn’t begin really until I met Christopher. He gets all the credit. He is the one who gave me the confidence to take my hobby and make it a profession. I still have never taken a class but am constantly amazed at how God continues to bless my little journey as an artist.

I love getting new paint in the mail, or a blank set of canvases! Many people have asked what supplies I use. I like to keep my “texturing” mixtures and combos a secret but I can tell you I use oil paint, acrylic paint (LOVE decoART so much), oil pastels, charcoal, sand and some secret things all to create my pieces!

I love knowing that they way I see the world can be put out on a white canvas for someone to enjoy in their home. I often think of God and how creative He is…every little detail that was created, so incredible.

    I love this. I went to school to teach art in junior high but I decided to do hair instead. Still love it and only do it for my own enjoyment.

    I've thought about this so much. I'm not a painter (though I wish I was!!) but a writer. And I feel most alive when I'm creating. It reminds me how we're made in God's image–we are his creation, creating. It's such a connection to God…and how amazing that we can in a little way be so like the CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE!

    I love that you're an artist. I love to create things too (more crafty than "artsy" stuff), and I too often think about how Heavenly Father created everything and what joy he must have had in that. It is so satisfying to create things and see how they can bring joy to other people's lives.

    I love this post. Simple yet captivating! I love the idea of an artist and while I myself can't really even draw, I appreciate art and viewing (kind of like you said) the world from a different perspective. Keep doing what you love because, even though times can be hard, it's what we're meant to do. LOVE <3

    You really are talented. REALLY!

    I really wish that we lived closer so that we could go to your studio in the dallas/ftworth area. I am a HUGE fan of the arts. I love to sing and act. When I think of high school I always wished I had taken an art class. maybe I will someday!

    Love your art posts, so inspiring! I'm an elementary art teacher, ever since I started teaching my own art has taken a backseat. You've inspired me to get back in the game:)

    you make me want to go buy a bunch of paint and brushes and canvas and just paint! even though I've never touched a piece of canvas!!!

    looooove it.

    the lover just walked up and said…
    lover: is that the girl you're always talking about.
    me: yea.
    lover: do you know her in real life.
    me: no.
    lover: so you met her through blogging?
    me: yea.
    lover: do you wish you did.
    me: we would be best friends.
    lover: do you plan to meet her one day?
    me: it's on my bucket list.

    I love that you have never taken a class!!! Your talent is real and natural! Thank you for the peek into your creative space. Seeing how others create is a favorite of mine! I read you work with sand, maybe you'd like a jar of sand from the Oregon coast?! I want to go with my family and I love sharing and spurring creativity… πŸ˜‰ Keep up the awesome work! I'm newer to your blog but I love it so very very much! You and your family are as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside!!!

    that art space is to die for. i definitely see the world through photography much like you probably do with canvases. it's a beautiful thing to have a hobby that allows creativity to seep out πŸ˜€
