I have always had a passion for art since I was a little girl. I was often found playing with clay dug up from the yard, or trying to sketch a small bird. I loved trying new things. I have always enjoyed being outdoors exploring how light changes form and color. Seeing life in trees, movement of water, the sun changing color over landmasses and mountains, has always inspired me. Taking time to study nature often makes me feel awe and gratitude for the Creator. God, who created the earth is a wonderful teacher! I find joy in striving to capture with paint what He describes through light!
My goal as an artist is to remind people of the peace and joy that can be found in the world, but that often gets overlooked in the rush of day-to-day life. I desire to help people return to truth. Through the things I depict, I hope to invite people to be inspired and uplifted, pulling them to higher realms of thought and living; reminding them of who they are as divine children of God. One of my favorite reminders of why I paint is, “It’s not just about the painting. It’s about the people.” (Linda Curley Christensen). My hope is that many will find personal meaning and be reminded of the love God has for them.
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
The greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is to see something… to see clearly is poetry, prophecy and religion—all in one.
If people only knew how hard I work to gain my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful at all... Genius is eternal patience.
For me a work of art must be an elevated interpretation of nature. The search for the ideal has been the purpose of my life.
