All are invited to a reception in the Gallery September 24, 2023 at 12:45 p.m. following worship at St. Giles Church.
My faith and relationship with God influence everything I do, especially my art. My education has been unconventional, yet I believe it is all directed by God. Inspired by my travels as a
former flight attendant, I long to recreate the places I visited and capture the human spirit through portraiture. Initially influenced by the Mona Lisa when I visited the Louvre in Paris, the focus of my art is plein air painting of historical sites and wedding venues and portraits of people, homes and pets, using a variety of mediums such as oil pastels, oils, pastels, acrylic, watercolor, and charcoal. I have over 1,000 portrait commissions to date.
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31
The gallery is open for viewing Monday - Thursday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Please note there are occasional events in the gallery which may impact this schedule.
