Art changes the atmosphere!
"Art is a form of play rejoicing before the face of God." ~ Hans Rookmaaker
When you love, let it be without condition
I am a native “Abilenenian”. I have lived here all my life and married my high school sweetheart, Brand, in 1981. We have an incredible family that is growing in numbers and I LOVE it! I attended Hardin Simmons University and majored in Art, concentrating my studio time in the area of print making and stone sculpture.I am a lover of the one who created the heavens and the earth, my God who wove me together in my mother’s womb. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, an abstract spiritual impressionist who longs to live a life that is in awe of God, His mysteries, and the beauty of His son Jesus!I have always been one who is very visual. When I hear a story, I see it. When I read a book, I’m there; and when I pray for someone, I often see pictures for that person. When I study God’s word, images begin to form in my mind. My work reflects those visions and glimpses of God’s vast emotions.I am inspired by words, especially God’s Word, the discovery of the intricacies of God’s emotions, music and the colors and textures that surround life. These inspirations are powerful and relevant to my work.
As I create, I attempt to bring together an aspect of God’s complexity combined with layers of processing the human soul as it searches for hope in the midst of the world’s contradictions. A goal in my work is to be a open window, releasing a life line of light. I love the quote from Hans Rookmaaker, “Art is play rejoicing before the face of God.” His words reflect my heart as I create.I paint to make the invisible visible with my intuitive style, creating a deep vision that may or may not be predictable or seen immediately. My aesthetic language of parable, analogy, and storytelling stirs the imagination to ponder the story, and the eternal drama of God’s mysteries and the complexity of His emotions.
Artists have a unique way of seeing past the surface of their subjects to bring their viewers into new realms. God uses the artist connected to His heart to cause the shell of hardened culture to crack and to reveal glimpses of glory from Gods heart. I recently read a wonderful explanation of art by Matt Tommey, “Artists are the life-givers in culture. We are a pivotal intersection point where the Kingdom of Heaven meets culture. It is there that we have the unique opportunity, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to translate the Kingdom of Heaven into a language that bypasses words and goes directly into the human spirit.
When we collaborate with the Holy Spirit in this dance of Kingdom creativity, His power, His Life and His Light merge with our faith, creative thoughts, imaginations, desires and skill into art that carries the literal presence and power of God. It is in this context that our art, no matter the creative medium, becomes a portal of divine inspiration. Every time you create a piece of art, and God is the one giving you inspiration, you get the unique opportunity to allow the Father to flow through you by the Holy Spirit to touch the life of the one who is interacting with your work. This process releases the testimony of Jesus through your creativity – who Jesus is, what he’s done, His presence, Glory, power, grace, mercy and healing – it literally releases the Spirit of Prophecy or the Breath (Wind) of God imparting life to the one interacting with your creative expression.
Because the Holy Spirit can work through anything at anytime with any person, your artwork becomes the place where Heaven meets earth. A table of sorts, where the Father waits to interact with people that interact with your art. It’s there that a divine conversation often begins that opens a window from heaven to earth.
